## Assignment #1: The Random Assignment Assignment

### Tutorial: Lesson 1 of 4

#### Random Sample of 50 Students from a Population of 643

Survey researchers often use random sampling to measure public opinion because it’s much cheaper to survey a representative sample of the public than to survey everyone. With the form below, it’s easy to generate a random sample.

Let’s say you’re interested in studying student attitudes toward climate change. If you wanted to randomly sample 50 students out of 643 at a local school, you would need to number all 643 students (Student 001, 002, 003, etc.) and then use the Randomizer form to generate 1 set of 50 unique numbers with a range from 1 to 643.

These settings have been chosen in the Randomizer form below. Click the “Randomize Now!” button to get your results.

Note: The Randomizer form and this assignment are adapted from Research Randomizer and Social Psychology Network, all rights reserved.

### Tutorial: Lesson 2 of 4

#### Random Assignment of 40 Participants to 4 Conditions

Although people sometimes confuse random assignment with random sampling, the two are really quite different. With random sampling, the goal is to choose a representative set of cases from a larger population. With random assignment, the goal is usually to give all participants an equal chance of being assigned to each experimental condition (regardless of how representative the participants are).
Suppose, for example, that you’re a medical researcher testing doses of a new drug, and you want to randomly assign 40 volunteers to 4 experimental conditions:
•     Condition 1 = Wonderdrug 5%
•     Condition 2 = Wonderdrug 10%
•     Condition 3 = Wonderdrug 15%
•     Condition 4 = Placebo
You would begin by giving each volunteer an identification number (Participant 001, 002, 003, etc.), and then use the Randomizer form to generate 1 set of 40 non-unique, unsorted numbers with a range from 1 to 4 (representing the four conditions).
Tutorial: Lesson 3 of 4

#### Random Assignment of 40 Participants in Blocks of 4

In Lesson 2, 40 volunteers were randomly assigned to one of 4 experimental conditions, but the result was that only 7 participants ended up in Condition 1—half the number that ended up in Condition 2. This kind of result is common in random assignment, just as tossing a coin 20 times usually leads to a different result than exactly 10 Heads and 10 Tails.
Unfortunately, large differences in sample size can interfere with certain statistical tests. One way around this problem is to use a “blocked design” in which participants are randomly assigned within a block of trials. In the drug experiment from Lesson 2, for example, we could divide the 40 volunteers into 10 blocks of 4 participants and then randomly assign each person within a block to one of the four experimental conditions, such as:
Participant 001: Condition 3
Participant 002: Condition 1
Participant 003: Condition 4
Participant 004: Condition 2
Participant 005: Condition 4
Participant 006: Condition 2
Participant 007: Condition 1
Participant 008: Condition 3
(and so on)
To generate random numbers for this kind of blocked design, you would fill out the Randomizer form for 10 sets of 4 unique, unsorted numbers with a range from 1 to 4 (representing the four conditions). For this example, we will also use the “Place Markers Across” viewing option to simplify interpretation of the results.

### Tutorial: Lesson 4 of 4

#### Random Ordering (Assignment) of 25 Items on a Test

Researchers sometimes need to randomize the order that things are presented, such as items on a test (e.g., to reduce order effects or discourage cheating).
Here’s an example: To create three different orderings of a 25-item test, just give each of the 25 items a number (Item 01, 02, 03, etc.), and then set the Randomizer form to generate 3 sets (representing three different tests) of 25 unique, unsorted numbers with a range from 1 to 25 (representing the number of items).

### Part 1: Draw a Random Sample

Suppose you have a numbered list of 100,000 students in a Coursera class, and you want to email a random sample of 150 students an invitation to participate in a study you’re conducting. In the past this task would have been very time consuming, but by using the Randomizer form below, you can generate the results in less than a minute. Simply fill out the form, click the “Randomize Now!” button, and submit your answer to complete this part of the assignment.
Note: It doesn’t matter whether you sort the numbers in this case, because the full sample of 150 students will be emailed all at once, but please check everything else carefully before clicking the button.

### Part 2: Carry Out Random Assignment

Let’s suppose that 90 students from Part 1 agree to participate in your study, and you number them from 1 to 90. In this last part of the assignment, your task is to assign each participant to one of three experimental conditions (for example, the first person might be assigned to Condition 2, the next to Condition 1, the next to Condition 3, the next to Condition 1, and so on). To complete this step, just generate 30 sets of random numbers ranging from 1 to 3 so that within each block of three students, one person is randomly assigned to each different condition.
