Introduction to Quantitative Meta-Analysis is a four-day workshop focused on the statistical techniques used to conduct quantitative meta-analyses. Quantitative meta-analysis allows synthesis of results from primary studies investigating relations among common variables. The procedure entails first capturing effect sizes that numerically describe the relationship among relevant variables in each primary study. Primary study characteristics can then be investigated as sources of variability in effect size estimates through the use of meta-analytic moderator analyses.

In this workshop, we will learn how to calculate the most common types of effect sizes (the standardized mean difference, correlation coefficient and log-odds ratio) given the different kinds of descriptive and inferential statistics that are reported. We will also learn how to average the effect size estimates across primary studies and how to conduct moderator analyses. Meta-analytic data are complicated and we will cover how best to handle some of the methodological complexities that are encountered. We will also learn how to assess and correct for potential publication bias.

Reviews

Dr. Beretvas is the epitome of teaching excellence – she is extremely knowledgeable in her area and is able to explain complex concepts to learners with a variety of backgrounds and clear cares about teaching.

I was very, very impressed with Dr. Beretvas' dedication to teaching us. This class really covered an enormous amount, and she provided incredibly detailed and accessible material with the online format.

I cannot say enough good things about Tasha's teaching and this course. Everything was well organized and clearly presented.

Tasha goes to great lengths to make information accessible to quantitative methods and non-quantitative methods students. Her notes are detailed and organized and her preparation for each class is extensive. It is a joy to learn from someone as enthusiastic and skilled as Tasha!

Tasha was a super fun and entertaining instructor. I loved content and the way she broke down concepts in ways that were easy to understand.

Dr. Beretvas continues to be one of the best professors I have ever had. She was always very engaging during her lectures.

Dr. Beretvas was very knowledgeable about course content. She was very thorough and made learning difficult concepts manageable and fun.
