IES Releases Report on the Role of Effect Size in Single-Case Research

The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) has released a report showing how research using single-case designs (SCDs) may contribute to the evidence base in education.

The purpose of the report is to present recommendations on how SCD researchers can calculate and report on standardized between-case effect sizes, the way these effect sizes can be used for various audiences to interpret findings, and how they can be used across studies to summarize the evidence base for education practices.
