What constitutes a meaningful difference in your NSSE results? With large samples it is common for very small differences to be statistically significant. That's why effect sizes, which provide a measure of "practical" significance, are so important. Based on a recent analysis of statistical comparisons of Engagement Indicators and High-Impact Practices, we have derived new recommendations for interpreting small, medium, and large effect sizes. In this webinar, we will explain our recommendations and invite participants to consider their use with their NSSE results.
