6 What can they do? Read a journal article " The effects of oxygenated water on exercise physiology during incremental exercise and recovery" N Willmert, JP Porcarl, C Foster, S Doserstein, and G Brice. J of Exer Phys. (online)5(4): (2011). Answer questions (n = 107)

7 Understand the organization of a journal article What section would you read if you wanted to quickly find out if oxygenated water affected exercise performance or recovery? 48% answered abstract (52% answered conclusion)

8 How is science practiced? How is knowledge generated? In 3-4 sentences describe why the authors did this study. Where did you find this information? 36% referred to prior scientific studies 45% referred to commercial claims that oxygenated water improves performance

9 Know the components of the scientific method What hypothesis/hypotheses was tested in this article? Where did you find this information? 14% reported no hypothesis given and wrote one in their own words 85.9% reported specific aims

10 Qualitative Skills Interpreting Experimental Design What was the heart rate in stage 1 and stage 3 for subjects who drank super oxygenated water? Explain why these numbers are different. 38.3% answered with X, Std Dev and explanation of exertion 23.3% no Std Dev 37% no Std. Dev, no explanation of exertion, vague answers

11 Qualitative Skills Graph Skills Graph the VO 2 values for subjects who drank tap water and for subjects who drank super oxygenated water. Perceived Exertion VO2 values Condition Placebo Treatment Placebo Treatment Rest Stage Stage Stage Max

12 Qualitative Skills Graph Skills 15.8% did not submit a graph 25% of the submitted graphs were bar graphs or scatter plots appropriately labeled 75% of the submitted graphs were scatter plots missing axis labels or incorrectly labeled

13 Understand value of statistics and hypothesis testing How did the authors determine if the oxygen consumption between subjects who consumed tap water were different than subjects who drank supra-oxygenated water? 22.5% answered statistics and p values 77.5% did not

14 Develop an argument/position with evidence Could drinking super oxygenated water improve your workouts? 15% justified answer with data/evidence 85% did not include data/evidence

15 What skills did I want them to have at the end of the course?
