When authors communicate the findings of their studies, there is often a focus on whether or not some intervention had the intended effect, and less attention to how much of an effect the intervention had. That is, it may be possible to state that some reading intervention increased reading scores more than the usual reading instructional techniques, but it is often more difficult for readers to determine how much of a difference the intervention made. Readers need to know if the intervention’s…

The objective of this article is to offer guidelines regarding the selection, calculation, and interpretation of effect sizes (ESs) and to assist producers and consumers of research in understanding the role, importance, and meaning of ESs in research reports.

Clinimetrics Corner: Use of Effect Sizes in Describing Data

Effect sizes are used to generate power requirements for a study and are the value of choice when calculating meta-analyses because they are independent of sample size and statistical significance measures.

Clinimetrics Corner: Use of Effect Sizes in Describing Data

Abstract Effect size is the name provided to a family of indices that are designed to measure magnitude of a targeted intervention. Generally, effect size measures are divided into three groups: 1)

Denouncing the use of field-specific effect size distributions to inform magnitude

It is hoped that this research will restrict the practice of interpreting ES magnitude relative to the distribution of ES values in a field and instead encourage researchers to interpret such by considering the specific context of the study.

Guide for calculating and interpreting effect sizes and confidence intervals in intellectual and developmental disability research studies

A nontechnical description of methods for calculating effect sizes in intellectual and developmental disability studies and sources of information on effect size calculators are included to provide researchers ready-available data analysis procedures for computing effect sizes and confidence intervals for different types of research designs and studies.

Using Effect Size in NSSE Survey Reporting.

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) provides participating schools an Institutional Report that includes (among many documents) mean comparisons, frequency distributions, and student

Abstract As data analytic methods in the managerial sciences become more sophisticated, the gap between the descriptive data typically presented in Table 1 and the analyses used to test the principal

Application of Bayesian posterior probabilistic inference in educational trials

A hierarchical Bayesian model was applied to ten cluster and multisite educational trials funded by the Education Endowment Foundation in England, to estimate the effect size and associated credible intervals and the use of posterior probability was proposed as an alternative to p-values.

A standardized mean difference effect size for single case designs

A new effect size measure for single case research that is directly comparable with the standardized mean difference (Cohen's d) often used in between-subjects designs is proposed.

A standardized mean difference effect size for multiple baseline designs across individuals

Estimation methods for the effect size and its variance are proposed, the estimators using simulation, and the approach is demonstrated in two applications.
