The Methods Training Using Sequential, Multiple Assignment, Randomized Trial (SMART) Designs for Adaptive Interventions in Education (SMART Design Training) topic is intended to support training of researchers to enhance their methodological skills related to the use of SMART designs and associated data analysis techniques when designing and evaluating adaptive interventions in education. Adaptive interventions use a sequence of individually tailored decision rules that specify whether, how, or when to alter the dosage, type, or delivery of interventions to individual students. SMART designs are experimental research designs that enable scientists to address multiple scientific questions related to building and evaluating high-quality adaptive intervention.
