English term or phrase:overassign
What does the term "overassign" mean in this context and how would you translate it into Spanish?
"An extension of the minimization technique (Conlon & Anderson, 1990) was used that overassigned to the BMC group at baseline; the approach was based on attrition data from a pilot study (Bear et al., 1997)."
It's from a nursing study with participants randomized into 2 groups: BMC (treatment) group and control group. Thank you.
Muchas gracias por vuestras sugerencias. He escogido ésta porque es la que me ha aclarado el significado de la frase (efectivamente, en inglés parecía que me faltaba algo para poder entenderla). 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
