Ives, Bob
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v36 n6 p490-504 Nov-Dec 2003
This paper reviews criticism on misinterpretation and overuse of significance testing in the social sciences and examines use of effect size measures to enhance interpretation of significance testing. Review of typical effect size measures and their application is followed by analysis of use of effect size measures in studies reported over 10 years in three journals on learning disabilities.
