  • Analytic Frameworks Interactive Quiz
  • Definition of an Analytic Framework What is an analytic framework? Incorrect. The analytic framework is not a tool for measuring bias in studies or in bodies of literature. Incorrect. Although this is one definition of an analytic framework, C is also correct. Therefore, D is the best answer. Incorrect. Although this is one definition of an analytical framework, B is also correct. Therefore, D is the best answer. Correct. Both B and C are definitions of an analytical framework. Incorrect. Both B and C are definitions of an analytical framework.
  • When Analytic Frameworks Are Developed Analytic frameworks are developed during the writing phase, at the end of the systematic review. Incorrect. The analytic framework should be developed at the beginning of the project, not at the end. It should be developed at the beginning of the review to provide a starting point for discussions with key informants, to identify logical flaws as key questions are developed, and to identify distinct bodies of evidence to be included in the review. The framework should also be used throughout the review process. Correct. The analytic framework should be developed during the topic refinement and preparation phase to help reviewers identify logical flaws as key questions are being developed, to provide the clinical and biological underpinnings for the mechanism of action of the intervention under review, and to clarify implicit assumptions in the review. The analytic framework is drafted to clarify complex questions and requires iterative revisions through the topic refinement process.
  • Key Uses of an Analytic Framework Why are analytic frameworks used in the course of a systematic review? Incorrect. Although this is one of the uses of an analytic framework, the other choices are also key components of an analytic framework. Incorrect. Although this is one of the uses of an analytic framework, the other choices are also key components of an analytic framework. Incorrect. Although this is one of the uses of an analytic framework, the other choices are also key components of an analytic framework. Incorrect. Although this is one of the uses of an analytic framework, the other choices are also key components of an analytic framework. Correct. All of these are key components of an analytic framework.
  • Population of Interest One of the essential components of an analytic framework is the population of interest. Correct. The population of interest is one of the essential components of an analytic framework model. The other components are the intervention, linkages that demonstrate key questions, intermediate outcomes, and ultimate health outcomes (including harms). Incorrect. The population of interest is one of the important components of an analytic framework. At a minimum, the population, intervention, and outcomes should be clearly identified in the analytic framework.
  • When To Use the Analytic Framework When is the most productive time to use the analytic framework? Incorrect. Although the analytic framework is developed early in the review process, the model should not be ignored until the writing phase. Before the writing phase, it is important to refer to the analytic framework to revisit inclusion/exclusion criteria, keep a handle on scope, reconsider the appropriateness of key questions, and guide interviews with key informants. Correct. Do not build it and forget it. Use the framework throughout the review process to revisit inclusion/exclusion criteria, keep a handle on scope, reconsider the appropriateness of key questions, and guide interviews with key informants. Let the framework help in structuring the report and results. Incorrect. The analytic framework does not guide the quality assessment, although it may be helpful in framing applicability. Incorrect. Although this answer may appear correct, it is incomplete. The analytic framework is developed in the early stages of the review, but it is also used throughout the review process to revisit inclusion/exclusion criteria, keep a handle on scope, reconsider the appropriateness of key questions, and guide interviews with key informants. Let the framework help in structuring the report and results.
  • Summary
  • Author This interactive quiz augments the module on analytic frameworks. This quiz was prepared by Melissa L. McPheeters, Ph.D., M.P.H., a member of the Vanderbilt University Evidence-based Practice Center. The quiz is based on an update of chapter 2 in version 1.0 of the Methods Guide for Comparative Effectiveness Reviews (available at: http://www.effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/ehc/products/60/294/2009_0805_principles1.pdf).

      • What is an analytic framework ?
      • A way to identify and measure bias
      • A visual way of linking and defining clinical concepts, evidence, and populations as they relate to outcomes
      • A way to check for logical flaws in the systematic review
      • Both B and C
      • None of the above
    Definition of an Analytic Framework
  • 3.
    • Analytic frameworks are developed during the writing phase, at the end of the systematic review.
    • True
    • False
    When Analytic Frameworks Are Developed
  • 4.
    • Why are analytic frameworks used in the course of a systematic review?
    • To provide clinical, biological, or health services underpinnings for the mechanism of action
    • To identify logical flaws as key questions are developed
    • To identify distinct bodies of evidence to be included in the review
    • To provide a starting point for discussions with key informants
    • All of the above
    Key Uses of an Analytic Framework
  • 5.
      • One of the essential components of an analytic framework is the population of interest.
      • True
      • False
    Population of Interest
  • 6.
      • When is the most productive time to use the analytic framework?
      • During the writing phase to allow the team to view the framework with fresh eyes
      • As the team needs it throughout the project
      • Only during quality assessment to assess applicability of studies
      • During the preparation phase to develop the key questions to provide a starting point for the key informants
    When To Use the Analytic Framework
  • 7.
    • An analytic framework :
      • Should be developed during the topic refinement process
      • Clarifies assumptions and complex questions
      • Identifies logical flaws as key questions are developed
      • Should be used throughout the comparative effectiveness review to revisit criteria, control scope, reconsider appropriate questions, guide interviews, and help structure results and the report
