"The levels of evidence outline by Sackett and
his colleagues in 2000 are as follows2:

1A = Systematic Review of Randomized
Controlled Trials (RCTs)
1B = RCTs with Narrow Confidence Interval
1C = All or None Case Series
2A = Systematic Review Cohort Studies
2B = Cohort Study/Low Quality RCT
2C = Outcomes Research
3A = Systematic Review of Case-Controlled
Studies
3B = Case-controlled Study
4 = Case Series, Poor Cohort Case Controlled
5 = Expert Opinion"

ThIS information was taken from a PDF file,found at, http://www.womenshealthapta.org/pdfs/SOWH-levelsofevidence.pdf

The reference was from the following source:

Sackett DL, Strauss SE, Richardson WS, et al. Evidence-Based Medicine: How to Practice and Teach EBM. Philadelphia, Pa: Churchill-Livingstone; 2000.

Hi Rage:

Congrats on your continuing education and good luck. Both I and the other members on this board would be more than happy to assist you with your project. Research is much easier than you think. I could even help you over the phone or via email.

What we won't do however, is get the articles for or do any of your assignment. You have asked for references in another post, and, as a student, need to be doing the work yourself.

So, fire away with questions, and let us know what you are having trouble with.

I will email you. However, you should have access to databases, full text articles and othe resources through your university where you are getting your DPT.
