Meta-Analysis of Cognitive Gender Differences: A Comment on an Analysis by Rosenthal and Rubin.
Becker, Betsy Jane; Hedges, Larry V.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v76 n4 p583-87 Aug 1984
This article extends both the logic and the statistical procedures used in a recent analysis of Hyde's data on gender differences in cognitive abilities by Rosenthal and Rubin. The logic of a "model fitting" approach to meta-analysis is described. Relevant statistical procedures and goodness-of-fit tests are illustrated. (Author/BS)
