What Future Quantitative Social Science Research Could Look Like: Confidence Intervals for Effect Sizes.
Thompson, Bruce
Educational Researcher, v31 n3 p25-32 Apr 2002
An improved quantitative science would emphasize the use of confidence intervals (CIs), especially CIs for effect sizes. This article reviews definitions and issues related to developing these intervals. CIs for effect sizes are especially valuable because they facilitate meta-analytic thinking and interpretations of intervals via comparison with the effect intervals from related prior studies. (SM)
