Happy new year, I am glad to let you know my proposal was accepted; I am now in an outline phase. I currently have another issue...which I am still discussing with the instructor. Can you please explain to me the meaning of this :

"You have an interesting non-traditional approach to quality. Your research plan seems well planned. My initial concern is that you do not provide much information supporting the need to do this IRB approval will be necessary for your survey. What techniques do you plan to implement to support he statistical significance of your survey results? Your sources seem to indicate solutions to a problem you have yet to prove exists."

Yes I have asked but have not yet received a response; I will not bore you with the details or the outline unless you care for it. I was planning on doing a survey (injury; because there is no formal evidence that capoeira practitioner actually get injured...I called insurance companies and clinics to see if they have data they will share lol) with a general population that practices capoeira and taken the results and applying RM into a small community based organization that uses capoeira as part of their fit approach to wellness.
I however don't understand what they instructor is asking especially this line "What techniques do you plan to implement to support he statistical significance of your survey results"

Please help

ok, if i get it right. then its like you are stating something like:
The percentage of lung cancer between smoking people is 30%.

the question is so what? is it high or is it low?

if you said compared to a 50% with non-smoker, then you are stating that smoking will reduce potential of getting lung cancer (loool)

if you said compared to 5% with non smoker, then you are proving that you have problem.

you need something like hypothesis testing or cohort study.
but if you give us more detail about the issue, then i might give u a better idea

Do you have a Design of Experiment (DOE) written? Do you have a plan on how you are going to do things? The professor is letting you know that you will probably not receive approval to proceed from the Institutional Review Board to conduct the research as-is. Some questions I have:
  1. What is the construct capoeira and how is it assessed?
  2. How do the insurance companies assess capoeira?
  3. Why do you have to do the survey? What steps will you take to validate the survey?
  4. As part of your DOE, what scripts are you using to communicate to the subjects? Why will they be completing the survey (what do they get out of it) and what is an acceptable response rate?
Sorry for all the questions. But I just don't know how to help you address the professor's concerns, until we see what your plan of action is.

BTW... hopefully you can summarize your DOE in two-three paragraphs here so we can help. :)

Well, i wouldn't use injuries, because, as is said, the closer to the fire, the likeable to be burn.

If your concern is how affect a martial art to healt, my approach would be to test for health tests, like blod tests (sugar, cholesterol), exercise endurance (how much time, doing the same sport can stand in a single sesion), but you will need test people that do that exercise and people that don't, and being something that deal with health (people with diferent activities, food habits, smokin, etc), a big sample, or test subjects before and after the training period (6 months at least imho).

The OP had a thread about this subject last summer, which is here (Risk Management - Risk of injury to a specific sport). There's more background in that post as to why he's pursuing this specific aspect.
