    Well I have read the chapters and the other readings but nothing else. I am so not motivated to do this. It's funny how as I sit to do the homework I keep thinking of things that need to be cleaned...light shades need to be washed...cabinets should be scrubbed down...all the china needs to be washed. Geez....I can't get motivated. But as previously stated Thank You to all who have emailed the TA's for clarification on the assignments.

    Just checked BB again and the DB posting has now been clarified and matches the info that cincinursemary posted. Yay, so we can now all be on the same page with this assignment! Our TA also said that most students do better in the last 3 weeks of this class. I hope those are encouraging words for anyone who has been having problems. It's supposed to get easier!
    OK now I'm officially Freaking confused. I email TA this morning to double check the requirements b/c the announcement didn't reflect info about the meta analysis part. She emailed me back at 11:30 this mroning and said the second part should be a continuation of the post and to be sure to use intext citations and 2 references ( not the assigned article as one)

    I am having palpatations about this. I emailed the director of nursing research at my hospital asking her for help with this DB assignment. Now I don't know what to do...

    If anyone is in section 029 can you PM me????

    According to what is posted in my section - this is directly from the professor. No meta-analysis required.

    My section doesn't require the meta-analysis either, per TA's announcement today.

    I found this site by accident and boy am I GLAD I found it!!!!!! I am not the only one that doesn't know what the heck is going on!!! I am freaking out!! I have been working for 3 1/2 hours and feel as if I am not getting anywhere!!!!!

    I emailed the professor (i'm in section 020) and awaiting the response. The ta's email bounced back to me!!

    I'm confused on writing 2-3 well developed sentences about the articles and telling if quantitative and or qualitative!!

    I am just glad to hear I am not the only one freaking out!!!

    Just heard back from professor. The "writing 2-3 well developed sentences....." was from another assignment and removed from the course. I emailed her back about the meta analysis.

    Her response was just to follow the announcement!!

    Ok, so I just recieved this email clarifying DB3.

    Directions: Carefully review the critical thinking decision path on page 179 of your textbook and identify the differences between an experimental design and a quasi-experimental design. Also, be sure to carefully review the tables on page 183 and on page 187.

    Make a list of three strengths and three weaknesses for each design: experimental and quasi-experimental.

    Read thoroughly the article Characteristics of Insured Patients with Persistent Gaps in Diabetes Care Services. Article is posted on the announcement board.

    Decide whether this study was an experimental design or a quasi-experimental design and list three reasons to support your decision. Please list.

    Read pages 210-213 of your textbook then visit Ohio University's online Library, or another library of your choice, to locate a single article that is a systematic review or a meta-analysis of a topic related to diabetes.

    Write 2-3 well-developed sentences, per research article, addressing the review findings; Note: make certain to note how many articles in the review were qualitative and quantitative and state what quantitative designs were found. After reading the article you will address the findings in each article that is analyzed. A meta-analysis often analyzes between 3 -15 articles. You will write 2-3 sentences for each article analyzed. You do nothing with the reference page of the meta-analysis -only focus on the articles analyzed.

    Include a minimum of 2 in text citations with references at the end of the post

    Include a minimum of 2 (no more than 3) professional references; your textbook may be used as one of the references; other reference(s) must come from peer reviewed journals (search on the internet for the definition and examples of peer reviewed journals)

    Submit your responses to your peers by no later than 11:59 pm Sunday of Week 3.
    Use APA style format

    Review and thoughtfully reply to at least two other student's postings

    Responses must be a minimum of one well-developed paragraph (approximately 5 well-developed sentences)

    Responses must include one in text citation with reference at the end of the post

    So in case any of you were wondering NOOOOO! this did not clarify anything for me. It is simply a re-post of the original directions in BB. TA-1 Me-0.... It appears it will be a loosing battle to understand what is required of us!

    Note from Ms Andreano
    There has been confusion about the assignment instructions for this week
    Professor Andreano has clarified the requirements:
    Make alist of three strengths and three weaknesses for each design: experimental and quasi-experimental.
    Read thoroughly the article Characteristics of Insured Patients with Persistent Gaps in Diabetes Care Services. This article was posted as an attachment to an announcement last week and is attached here as well.
    Decide whether this study was an experimental design or a quasi-experimental design and list three reasons to support your decision



    This should explain the assignment and it is the current explanation.

    Go with the usual citations/references, etc.

    This is the same thing that was posted in our assignment tab. Some say it's in and some say it's out! It just doesn't make sense to have 2 assignments for one DB post. I hope they get their act together soon!
