Comparing Effect Size Measures

This scratchpad is very similar to an earlier one on Cohen's d. Provide the relevant descriptive measures for two groups. You will see both Cohen's d and eta-squared. Using the suggested (and general) social science guidelines by Jacob Cohen you can determine if you'd come up with the same description of "effect" using either effect size measure.

Use the tab key to go to the first data box. Enter a score, then tab again to go to the next box. And so on. Within a couple of boxes you will see the term NaN which means not a number. Don't worry, these boxes will update to regular numbers once enough data has been submitted.
