Use of the internet to support instruction in general and the use of statistical software in particular provides instructors and students with an opportunity to improve learning while maintaining effective use of limited classroom time. We have developed a Web site (http://power.education.uconn.edu/) that encompasses instruction in power analysis issues and teaches students and others how to use the nQuery Advisor© software to establish sample size for research designs ranging from the simple to the complex. The evaluation results of our Power Project Web site and materials are promising, and the purpose of this paper is to share our approach and materials with other instructors of statistics and research design.
