Conceptual Issues in Research Synthesis.
Pillemer, David B.
Journal of Special Education, v18 n1 p27-40 Spr 1984
The paper explores the conceptual bases of the controversy over meta analysis and computes it with traditional research on four dimensions: (1) scientific rigor, (2) detecting small effects, (3) problems of oversimplification, and (4) potential policy impact. It is argued that choice of procedures should be determined by the specific purpose of a review. (Author/CL)
