1. ### Calculating effect size with interaction term

If I am running multiple regression in r, what is the next step in order to get the effect size for all variables when there's also an interaction term in the equation. For example: model=lm(DV ~ Var1 + Var2 + Var2:Var3) Also, what's the best way to determine whether or not to do an...
2. ### MLR equivalent for repeated measures, multiple correlated responses

I'd like to determine the best approach to determining effect sizes for a set of experimental data with multiple correlated responses. Due to repeated measurements and high correlation between responses, I know that a simple multiple linear regression model obviously isn't the answer. The...
3. ### Semipartial correlations for simple slopes

Hello! I'm in need of some help for calculating sr2 for simple slopes. Here is my situation: I'm using SPSS. I have three IVs: x1: dichotomous and coded -1,1 x2: dichotomous and coded -1,1 x3: continuous centered variable I have a 3 way interaction that I've calculated the simple...
4. ### Meta-analysis: How should one handle non-significant studies containing no raw data?

Let's say that I'm conducting a meta-analysis, looking at the performance of group A and group B with respect to a certain construct. Now, some of the studies that I'll come across will report that no statistical differences could be found between the two groups but no exact test statistics...
5. ### Paired T-test effect size

Can someone please direct me to a calculation for an effect size for a paired samples t-test along with a reference? Thanks in advance.
6. ### Effect sizes and repeated measures

Hi there, I am doing a bit of research looking at the effects of repeat test taking. Students are allowed to take a test multiple times. I have a dataset including student scores on each iteration of the test. I have done a repeated measures ANOVA to try to determine whether scores...
7. ### Post-hoc Power, effect size for Chi-square

I need help with my post-hoc power analysis, specifically the effect size: I measure children's successrate under four conditions. My dependent variable is nominal (specifically binary, with the values 0 (failed) and 1(succeeded)) My independent variable is nominal with four categories. My...
8. ### Graphing Effect Size Comparions

Hi! I would like to take a single school's achievement data (as an effect size) and plot that on a scatterplot graph with the matched district and state level data as well on the same graph, so as to compare where the school of interest falls as compared to the district and state. What do I...
9. ### Calculating D from interaction F values

Hi everyone I am reviewing a study where I need to calculate an effect size of gender differences (Cohen's d). The study looks at the effect of effort on men and women, but do not report the standard deviations for me to calculate d, but do report an repeated measures ANOVA value interaction...
10. ### Calculating effect size for a within group comparison of score before&after treatment

Hi all, :wave: I am wondering which formula will be more suitable for calculating effect size (Cohen's d) of an intervention with scores obtained before (1 score) & after treatment (1 score) in the same group of individuals. :confused: As I had two scores, I used paired t-test for for within...
11. ### Calculating effect size for generalized linear model?

Hi, I have carried out a generalized linear model (in SPSS) with one dependent variable and two factors. Both factors have multiple categories (ie. one factor has three 'groups', the other four). I would like to calculate the effect size for each factor. I have found a lot of information...
12. ### Calculation of effect size in Hierarchical regression

Hello there, I have conducted a hierarchical regression with two steps. Statistical significance resulted form the first step, as the second step did not seem to add any value to the model. How could I calculate the effect size of the model? And more specifically: Suppose that we have...
13. ### Standard deviation of the mean difference out of Pre/Post Test Descriptive Statistics

I have several RCT pre/post intervention studies that I am calculating Hedge's g for. All of the studies report the difference of mean and difference of standard deviation between pre/post for each group except one. I know how to calculate the difference of mean [= Mean(post)-Mean(pre)], but...
14. ### Moderated Mediation when Independent Variable is also the moderator

I have a question on a special case of moderated mediation... I want to compare some effect sizes of: a "simple moderation model" with a "moderated mediation model in which the IV is also a moderator". I don't have data yet. But I want to know if the betas (effect sizes) explained in...
15. ### What is the difference between statistical significance (based on probability) and...

(Questions wouldn't fit) What is the difference between statistical significance (based on probability) and an effect size? I am fairly new to stats and finding a bit of an up hill marathon at the moment. I have been asked to research the question posted above, yet I have exhausted my...
16. ### Does n Affect Effect Size

We all know the pvalues are affected by sample size. I've had profs claim that effect size is unaffected by sample size. But I'm thinking this may not be true. Let's take standardized mean difference with the pooled sd in the denominator: where... and where... and also... I'm not...
17. ### effect size to report or not

I challenged a prof today and I said that an effect size should not be reported for non significant results. He strongly disagreed. What are your thoughts (I'm ok if I'm wrong but I want to know why). If anyone has specific sources to cite that would be awesome.
18. ### Comparing two methods to measure disease severity

I am testing a new, fast method to score disease severity in an animal model of a human disease. M appears to be less sensitive than the gold standard scoring method, G. G is discrete and has a range (0,1,2...20). M is continuous and varies from 0 to 1. The linear correlation coef between...
19. ### Calculating effect size.

Hi, I'm learning about ANOVA's and understand that to report results I have to calculate effect size. We have been taught to calculate W^2 (Omega squared) first and then carry on with comparison tests. Can you tell me if the W^2 has to be significant before computing comparison tests or is...
20. ### effect size for McNemar's?

Is it possible to calculate effect size for comparisons made using the McNemar's test? If so, how? I am at a total loss on this after spending A LOT of time combing the web. I would be so grateful if anyone had any ideas!
