e. Did the participants stay out of the Emergency Department for non-life threatening injuries?
f. Were the participants able to receive their prescriptions on time?
Methodology
Research Design:
Quasi-experiments have been used as far back as the 18th century and continue to be frequently utilized by researchers today for three primary reasons: (1) to meet the practical requirements of funding, school administrators, and ethics, (2) to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention when the intervention has been implemented by educators prior to the evaluation procedure having been considered and (3) when researchers want to dedicate greater resources to issues of external and construct validity (Shadish, Cook, & Campbell, 2002).
The one-group posttest-only design will be used to test the effectiveness of the bus pass/gas card program. The posttest will be given to the participants the last month of the program. The posttest will be in a form of multiple choice and short answers to determine if the program was effective. During the 11th month into the program the new employee will hand out the posttest during the last handouts of the bus pass/gas cards. If anyone had dropped out of the program early they would be mailed a posttest with an envelope that can be returned to the office. The date will be collected and imputed into a spreadsheet by the new employee (program director).
The diagram of the design is:
