Effect size

Effect size = any measure of the strength of a relationship between two variables. Large numbers of respondents make it more likely that any small difference will be statistically significant. Effect size attempts to measure real-world significance. The NSSE-proposed reference values for the interpretation of effect sizes from NSSE benchmark comparisons are:

Small = 0.1                     

Medium = 0.3               

Large = 0.5                    

Very Large = 0.7
