Kavale, Kenneth A.
Journal of Special Education, v18 n1 p61-72 Spr 1984
The need for research synthesis is explored as well as the benefits of meta-analysis, particularly those related to understanding and explanation. The problems with traditional review methods are discussed, with special relevance to their failure to resolve problems. Finally, the findings from several meta-analyses are summarized and contrasted with traditional reviews. (Author/CL)
