Why is a sequential design desirable when possible?
Correspondingly, what is the major benefit to a sequential design?
Sequential designs have the advantages of both. They offer information in a short amount of time in that you have several groups being studied. You also have individual differences recorded over the long term so that a researcher can look at larger effects and trends.
Beside above, what is a cohort sequential design? cohort-sequential design. an experimental design in which multiple measures are taken over a period of time from two or more groups of different ages (birth cohorts). Such studies essentially are a combination of a longitudinal design and a cross-sectional design. Also called accelerated longitudinal design.
Herein, what is sequential design in research?
Sequential research designs include elements of both longitudinal and cross-sectional research designs. Similar to longitudinal designs, sequential research features participants who are followed over time; similar to cross-sectional designs, sequential research includes participants of different ages.
Which is a major challenge specific to longitudinal designs?
The main challenge of using a longitudinal design is the cost in time and resources. These studies are much more expensive and take much longer to conduct than a cross-sectional study with the same number of participants. A second issue is the impact of repeated testing.
