Cox, Kyle; Kelcey, Benjamin – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
We derive sample-allocation formulas that maximize the power of several mediation tests in two-level-group-randomized studies under a linear cost structure and fixed budget. The results suggest that the optimal individual sample size is typically smaller than that associated with the detection of a main effect and is frequently less than 10 under…
