Supersizing Effect Sizes Raises Concerns: A Reply to Zimmerman (2014)
Donnellan, M. Brent; Ferguson, Christopher J.
Developmental Psychology, v50 n1 p141-142 Jan 2014
Zimmerman (2014) suggested that our reanalysis adds little to the scientific literature. We disagree. We clarify our motivations and explain how further analyses based on his suggestion for age do not change our conclusions. Moreover, we believe the nascent experimental literature is more in line with our interpretations than Zimmerman's. We continue to believe that scientists should be cautious when describing effect sizes.
