A Test of Two Refinements in Procedures for Meta-Analysis

  title={A Test of Two Refinements in Procedures for Meta-Analysis},
  author={Kenneth S. Law and Frank L. Schmidt and J. Edward Hunter},
This study used Monte Carlo simulation to examine the increase in accuracy resulting from 2 statistical refinements of the interactive Schmidt-Hunter procedures for meta-analysis: the use of the mean correlation instead of individual correlations in the estimation of sampling error variance, and a procedure that takes into account the nonlinear nature of the range-restriction correction. In all of the cases examined, these refinements increased the accuracy of the interactive procedure in… CONTINUE READING
