January 17, 2012

Robert McCowen—Interdisciplinary Evaluation Doctoral Student, WMU

Meta-analysis is a powerful technique for synthesizing the results of multiple studies into a single conclusion. It yields objective, empirical, and largely value-neutral evidence; using meta-analysis, evaluators can estimate the central tendency of study outcomes, test the pattern of variations in outcomes, and estimate the overall effects of and relationships between variables. This Eval Cafe session will focus on providing an overview of this tool, including examples and resources for audience members who are interested in finding out how to conduct their own meta-analyses.
