Some Comments on the Use of Magnitude-of-Effect Estimates.
Strube, Michael J.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v35 n3 p342-45 Jul 1988
Demonstrates that magnitude-of-effects (ME) estimates vary in susceptibility to sample-size bias depending on whether they are directional or nondirectional estimates. Also demonstrates that study characteristics that influence size of ME estimates can be explicitly taken into account when comparing studies. Emphasizes need to consider study features that can distort ME estimates. (Author/NB)
