- The authors described the study design, sampling procedures, how they monitored sample build-up and decided when to end random assignment, and how they monitored adherence to the study’s random assignment procedures.
- They noted three key factors important for successful implementation of a randomized study design in an ongoing program: (1) commitment of program managers to the goals of the study and its related tasks, (2) close collaboration between research and program staff, and (3) monitoring of study procedures to ensure integrity.
