Start Your Study Design

Welcome to GLIMMPSE. The GLIMMPSE software calculates power and sample size for study designs with normally distributed outcomes. Select one of the options below to begin your power or sample size calculation.

Build common study designs including ANOVA, ANCOVA, and regression with guidance from the study design wizard. This mode is designed for applied researchers including physicians, nurses, and other investigators.
Directly enter the matrices for the general linear model. This mode is designed for users with advanced statistical training.
If you have previously saved a study design from GLIMMPSE, you may upload it here. Click 'Upload a Study Design' to select your study design file.
