Setting Up a Protocol

In this video series, we cover the basics of protocols. You can follow along as we demonstrate how to create a new protocol, describe its components, then dive into the most important features and tools related to protocol authoring.

1. Introduction to Protocols (3:30)

In this video, we introduce the first component of an experiment – the protocol.

2. Create a New Protocol (4:59)

We demonstrate how to create a new empty protocol in ARM, and explore the protocol settings.

3. Editor Basics (2:10)

Learn the fundamentals about the editor screens within ARM.

4. Components of a Protocol (5:08)

In this video, we introduce all of the components of a protocol. A general overview of each editor is given, describing its purpose and functionality.

5. Filling in the Treatments List (6:56)

Follow along as we fill in a basic treatments list. We will create several treatments in ARM, demonstrating how to enter treatment information and introducing validation lists.

6. Outlining Treatment Applications (8:18)

We discuss how to plan treatment applications within an ARM protocol. We will add applications to a study using a repeating section, link the applications to individual treatment line components, and plan appropriate Spray Volume and Mix Size settings.

7. Specifying Planned Assessments (8:56)

In this video we will discuss the reasons for entering planned assessments into a protocol, demonstrate with a couple of examples, and introduce editor views by utilizing hidden fields.

8. Generating a Protocol Report (4:42)

In this video we introduce protocol reports in ARM, customize their components, and export the report to a file.

Use the SE Definitions tab of the Protocol Description to plan and define standard evaluations (SEs) to use in an ARM study.

Treatment Paste Special

Use Paste Special to quickly duplicate treatment lines, for example adding an adjuvant to many treatments at the same time.

Creating a Split-Plot Factorial Study

Learn how to set up a Split-Plot (factorial) protocol in ARM, and how the trial will be randomized.
