The Prevalence of Declining Effect Sizes in Educational Research

Effect sizes are the statistic generated by meta-analyses, a commonly used statistic in education research. This project uses a methodological framework similar to that of Jennions and Moller (2001) to determine whether declining effect sizes can be observed in educational research and attempts to explain possible causes of this observation.
