Data Collection Assessment
A tool for research studies
Researchers want a fixed, consistent pre-intervention baseline measure against which to compare post-intervention outcomes collected over the duration of the study. By using our Data Collection Assessment fuel level results are recalculated for each subject referencing the entire study to determine the minimum and maximum of that individual’s fuel tank. This normalizes data against the initial baseline measure.
How it works
In most research studies the Fuel Level scores will be the outcome of interest.
- For each subject’s session of images, select the Data Collection Assessment to save this scan data.
- When a Data Collection Assessment session is created, the results for that assessment and all previous assessments for that subject will be updated.
- Each sequential assessment for that subject will reference the previous assessment to ensure consistency in scans collected.
- Once the study is completed, click on the Data tab (cloud with arrow) to download the complete table of results.
NOTE: At present with the creation of each Data Collection Assessment session only the current Muscle Energy Status will be displayed. Fuel Rating, Fuel Symmetry, and Fuel Levels are only provided when you indicate the study is complete.
