## The impact of statistical power on effect size estimates In a previous post, we saw that the number of subjects or samples in our study does not influence the rate of false-positive findings. In this post we will learn how sample size influences estimates of the size of studied effects. If the true effect of a medication is to reduce heart rate by 10 beats per minute, how well

## Cohen’s d: How to interpret it? In our two previous post on Cohen’s d and standardized effect size measures [1, 2], we learned why we might want to use such a measure, how to calculate it for two independent groups, and why we should always be mindful of what standardizer (i.e., the denominator in d = effect size / standardizer) is used to calculate Cohen’s d.

## Cohen’s d: what standardiser to use? In a previous post we learned about Cohen’s d, a standardized measure of effect size. In this post we will learn why it is important to consider what value is being used to standardize our effect size. Cohen’s d and the standardiser The basic formula to calculate Cohen’s d is: d = [effect size / relevant standard deviation]. The denominator
