Confidence Intervals for Effect Sizes in Social Science or Education Research

Confidence Intervals for Effect Sizes in Social Science or Education Research

An improved quantitative science would emphasize
the use of confidence intervals (CIs),
and especially CIs for effect sizes. This article
reviews some definitions and issues related
to developing these intervals. Confidence intervals
for effect sizes are especially valuable
because they facilitate meta-analytic thinking
and the interpretation of intervals via comparison
with the effect intervals from related
prior studies. Several recommendations for
the thoughtful use of such CIs are presented.
