|Study Start Date :||June 2005|
|Study Completion Date :||October 2005|
- We will compare palm-recordings with paper and pencil recordings to examine how well these correlate.
- Correlations will be used to compare the total number of smoked cigarettes reported by the daily ratings (paper and pencil or palm pilot) to participants' report of their weekly totals.
- We will measure the frequency at which participants access a screen on the Palm Pilot that presents the "4 D's," which are four strategies for delaying or reducing cigarette use.
- Repeated measured t-tests will be used to compare participants' cotinine levels before and after participating in this program.
- We will use an independent samples t-test to compare satisfaction scores for the two monitoring methods.
- We will assess the degree of compliance with completing the mood rating scale (how many out of 7 were completed in the week) and will compare compliance rates for the Palm and paper-and-pencil versions using an independent samples t-test.
- We will assess the amount of training time required to train participants to use either the paper and pencil or Palm Pilot versions of the monitoring form.
