APS-SMEP Methodological Workshop Series
Estimation for Better Research: Effect Sizes, Confidence Intervals, and Meta-Analysis
Thursday, May 24, 2012,
9:00 AM - 12:50 PM
The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association states, “wherever possible, base discussion and interpretation of results on point and interval estimates.” This workshop will explain why an estimation approach is better than null-hypothesis significance testing and will describe how to calculate and interpret effect sizes and confidence intervals for a range of measures and designs. It will also introduce meta-analysis and the use of precision for research planning. The emphasis will be on understanding and on practical strategies. Much use will be made of the interactive simulations of Exploratory Software for Confidence Intervals (ESCI). There is more information about ESCI and the book that includes the material in the workshop at www.thenewstatistics.com.
