Taylor, Alan M.
Language Learning & Technology, v18 n3 p1-4 Oct 2014
Meta-analytic methods are often used to determine the effectiveness of certain treatments across studies. However, we are often unaware of how a meta-analysis can provide value to researchers and practitioners. This paper offers a brief commentary on a meta-analysis conducted by Lin, Huang and Liou (2013) in LLT, providing further statistical evidence of the importance of their results.
