SeqAlloc-package: Sequential Allocation for Randomized Experiments

Description Details Author(s) References


Potential randomization schemes are prospectively evaluated when units are assigned to treatment arms upon entry into the experiment. The schemes are evaluated for balance on covariates and on predictability (i.e., how well could a site worker guess the treatment of the next unit enrolled).
