Statistical Significance and Effect Size in Education Research: Two Sides of a Coin.
Fan, Xitao
Journal of Educational Research, v94 n5 p275-82 May-Jun 2001
Shows, through a Monte Carlo experiment, that statistical significance testing and effect size are related and complementary but do not substitute for each other, noting that good research requires consideration of both. Results of the experiment indicate that there is considerable variability in the sample effect size measure, and the extent of such variability is influenced by sample size. (SM)
