Multiple Regression Methodology in the "Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk": Effect Sizes and Structure Coefficients.
Herring, Jennifer C.
This study reviewed the statistical practices in published research articles in the Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk to determine the reporting of effect sizes and structure coefficients. Of the 12 quantitative studies found in the last 3 volumes of the journal, only 3 were identified as using multiple regression analysis. Two of the three indicated use of effect size magnitudes, but the third reported only F and p- values. None of these articles gave structure coefficients. Reporting effect sizes highlights the difference between statistical and practical significance. The paper also recommends the use of what-if analysis when using regression. (SLD)
