Overview

The goal of this book is to inform a broad readership about a variety of measures and estimators of effect sizes for research, their proper applications and interpretations, and their limitations. Its focus is on analyzing post-research results. The book provides an evenhanded account of controversial issues in the field, such as the role of significance testing. Consistent with the trend toward greater use of robust statistical methods, the book pays much attention to the statistical assumptions of the methods and to robust measures of effect size.

Effect Sizes for Research discusses different effect sizes for a variety of kinds of variables, designs, circumstances, and purposes. It covers standardized differences between means, correlational measures, strength of association, and confidence intervals. The book clearly demonstrates how the choice of an appropriate measure might depend on such factors as whether variables are categorical, ordinal, or continuous; satisfying assumptions; the sampling method; and the source of variability in the population.

It emphasizes a practical approach through:

  • worked examples using real data;
  • formulas and rationales for a variety of variables, designs, and purposes to help readers apply the material to their own data sets;
  • software references for the more tedious calculations; and
  • informative figures and tables, questions, and over 300 references.

Intended as a resource for professionals, researchers, and advanced students in a variety of fields, this book is an excellent supplement for advanced courses in statistics in disciplines such as psychology, education, the social sciences, business, management, and medicine. A prerequisite of introductory statistics through factorial analysis of variance and chi-square is recommended.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the book is a study in absolute clarity. Overall, Grissom and Kim have presented a tour de force treatment of effect sizes that is accurately described in their subtitle as being both broad and practical." - Applied Psychological Measurement

"No other current book provides the broad overview of effect size measures contained in this book....I am especially impressed by the authors knowledge of the latest developments in the literature....The level is appropriate for a broad range of readers....I would use it regularly to advise colleagues and students how to calculate and interpret various effect size measures. The publication of this book might stimulate us to offer a separate course on effect size measures." - Scott E. Maxwell, Ph.D., University of Notre Dame

"I strongly recommend this book for anyone who wishes to conduct research based on reason and not luck....The quality of the scholarship is excellent....The level is appropriate for an upper class undergraduate through doctoral reading audience....it would be valuable throughout the social and behavioral sciences, medicine, nursing, etc....I would use this [book] as supplemental reading for all six stat courses I teach." - Shlomo S. Sawilowsky, Ph.D., Wayne State University

"The coverage and depth of this book is exceptional. I learned several new things just by reviewing a handful of chapters....The examples are...excellent in terms of their context and applicability....I can easily see this book used as a supplement in...[a variety of] courses...a valuable reference for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students." - Allen Huffcutt, Ph.D., Bradley University
