We term pre-test as the data collection/measures before conducting an experiment and post-test is data collection/measures after the experiment. How do we term the process of data collection/measures during the experiment (such as physiological measures)? I am looking for a specific "term" to describe the "during-test" event.
People use a wide range of language to describe measurement points in repeated measures design.
For example if you measured some dependent variable on multiple occasions you might have something like:
- baseline (B)
- treatment week 1 (T1)
- treatment week 2 (T2)
- post treatment (F0)
- six month follow up (F6)
- one year follow (F12)
Obviously such a design has aspects that are consistent with a pre-post test design, but it has more time points than just that. So my suggestion is to just have clear descriptive labels for the measurement points.
