you can try -findit sampclus-

but whatever method you use, you will need an estimate of the
intraclass correlation.

I am designing a randomized control trial, where we are going to
select about 12 students per classroom and randomize them into 3
groups, a control and 2 treatment groups. Is there a way I can compute
the number of classrooms needed for the study using the following
criteria:

Desired power=0.8
Estimated effect size = 0.2
alpha = 0.0167
1 pre-test measure
1 post-test measure
approx correlation between the two measures = 0.25
