Course Project Worksheet – Calculating Sample Sizes Using G* Power
Using the G* power website, download the free software and conduct a G* power analysis using the provided data.
There are 4 types of power analysis (a priori, post-hoc, criterion, and sensitivity). For the purposes of this class, we will focus on a priori power analysis since it is most commonly used when designing a research study (Hunt, n.d.).
Using the following parameters, complete a G* power analysis:
Alpha= .05
Power= .80
Expected Effect Size= In Week 2 Discussion 2, we practiced using the “Which Stats Test” Sage Tool.
Refer to the statistical test determined using that tool and select the large effect size for the appropriate test. (Note: if you aren’t sure which test to use, you can use the t-test family, correlation). You will not lose points for choosing the incorrect test. The point here is to determine a test, input the parameters into G*power, and explain the results.

5. In 2016, the Pew Research Center surveyed 1,799 white and 1,001 black Americans about their views on race and inequality. Pew researchers found “profound differences between black and white adults in their views on racial discrimination, barriers to black progress and the prospects for change.” White and black respondents also disagreed about the best methods to achieve racial equality. For example, 34% of whites and 41% of blacks said that “bringing people of different racial backgrounds together to talk about race” would be a very effective tactic for groups striving to help blacks achieve equality (Frankfort-Nachmias, & Leon-Guerrero, 2021, p. 276).
Test whether the proportion of white respondents who support this tactic is significantly less than the proportion of black respondents.
