Barry, Adam E.; Szucs, Leigh E.; Reyes, Jovanni V.; Ji, Qian; Wilson, Kelly L.; Thompson, Bruce – Health Education & Behavior, 2016
Given the American Psychological Association's strong recommendation to always report effect sizes in research, scholars have a responsibility to provide complete information regarding their findings. The purposes of this study were to (a) determine the frequencies with which different effect sizes were reported in published, peer-reviewed…

Skidmore, Susan Troncoso; Thompson, Bruce – Educational Researcher, 2012
The present article responds briefly to the comments, in this issue of "Educational Researcher," of Petrosino and of Robinson to the "Propagation of Misinformation About Frequencies of RFTs/RCTs in Education: A Cautionary Tale." The authors emphasize that the context of how the quality of education research is perceived both within and outside the…

Skidmore, Susan Troncoso; Thompson, Bruce – Educational Researcher, 2012
In this article, the authors examine the interconnections among education researchers' misconceptions about the quality of the education research literature. Specifically, the authors catalog the sequence of events that, when taken together with a series of contradictory graphs presented by influential scholars in prominent settings, may have…

Vacha-Haase, Tammi; Thompson, Bruce – Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, 2011
The present study was conducted to characterize (a) the features of the thousands of primary reports synthesized in 47 reliability generalization (RG) measurement meta-analysis studies and (b) typical methodological practice within the RG literature to date. With respect to the treatment of score reliability in the literature, in an astounding…

Skidmore, Susan Troncoso; Thompson, Bruce – Journal of Experimental Education, 2011
In the present Monte Carlo simulation study, the authors compared bias and precision of 7 sampling error corrections to the Pearson r[superscript 2] under 6 x 3 x 6 conditions (i.e., population ρ values of 0.0, 0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, and 0.9, respectively; population shapes normal, skewness = kurtosis = 1, and skewness = -1.5 with kurtosis =…

Skidmore, Susan Troncoso; Thompson, Bruce – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
The purpose of the present study is to provide a historical account and metasynthesis of which statistical techniques are most frequently used in the fields of education and psychology. Six articles reviewing the "American Educational Research Journal" from 1969 to 1997 and five articles reviewing the psychological literature from 1948 to 2001…

Zientek, Linda Reichwein; Yetkiner, Z. Ebrar; Thompson, Bruce – Journal of Educational Research, 2010
The authors report the contextualization of effect sizes within mathematics anxiety research, and more specifically within research using the Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale (MARS) and the MARS for Adolescents (MARS-A). The effect sizes from 45 studies were characterized by graphing confidence intervals (CIs) across studies involving (a) adults…

Zientek, Linda Reichwein; Thompson, Bruce – Research in the Schools, 2010
Self-efficacy and mathematics anxiety have been identified as predictors of mathematics achievement. In the present study, secondary analyses on matrix summaries available from prior published studies were utilized to investigate the contribution that self-efficacy and mathematics anxiety made in mathematics performance. Commonality analyses were…

Contakos, Jonas; Carlton, Les G.; Thompson, Bruce; Suddaby, Rick – Physics Teacher, 2009
From its inception, performance in the sport of gymnastics has relied on the laws of physics to create movement patterns and static postures that appear almost impossible. In general, gymnastics is physics in motion and can provide an ideal framework for studying basic human modeling techniques and physical principles. Using low-end technology and…

Thompson, Bruce – Middle Grades Research Journal, 2009
The present article provides a primer on using effect sizes in research. A small heuristic data set is used in order to make the discussion concrete. Additionally, various admonitions for best practice in reporting and interpreting effect sizes are presented. Among these is the admonition to not use Cohen's benchmarks for "small," "medium," and…

Zientek, Linda Reichwein; Thompson, Bruce – Educational Researcher, 2009
Correlation matrices and standard deviations are the building blocks of many of the commonly conducted analyses in published research, and AERA and APA reporting standards recommend their inclusion when reporting research results. The authors argue that the inclusion of correlation/covariance matrices, standard deviations, and means can enhance…

Harrison, Judith; Thompson, Bruce; Vannest, Kimberly J. – Review of Educational Research, 2009
This article reviews the literature on interventions targeting the academic performance of students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and does so within the context of the statistical significance testing controversy. Both the arguments for and against null hypothesis statistical significance tests are reviewed. Recent standards…

Zientek, Linda Reichwein; Thompson, Bruce – Research in the Schools, 2008
Narrowing the achievement gap will be contingent on preparing high-quality teachers. Results from empirical investigations of novice mathematics and science teachers' indicated that (a) mathematics teachers did not feel prepared to teach in high-poverty school districts; (b) positive mentoring experiences alone were not as important as we would…
