In the spreadsheet, there is the option to get generalized eta squared for within subjects designs using sums of squares (not sue how to do this with a mixed model output), but not generalized omega squared (though you can do this using the F and error). Is the generalized omega squared only for between subjects then? If we are reporting on 2 within subject variables interacting, should we just stick with generalized eta squared? Or is f-squared or omega squared more appropriate?

I would love to apply omega- instead of eta-squared, but I am unsure about whether your cool spreadsheet actually makes sense for within subject-repeated measures anova. I end up with values bigger than .3 for both omega- and eta squared. I guess this can't be true and is due to the fact that I have F-values from a within subjects design. Would be great to get your opinion on this.

Assuming that Anova is what you wan to do, I can't imagine why anyone would plan his sample size based on eta or omega. Significant fraction of sum of squares is just a first step in the analysis for virtually every Anova I've seen reported. Pair-wise post-hoc comparisons follow. These are more critical for sample planning as they require much higher sample size to achieve acceptable power than the variance tests. So you should be planning for highly powered post-hoc tests in the first place, right?matushttp://simkovic.github.io/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-987850932434001559.post-13126348673410447782015-06-10T01:29:44.384-07:002015-06-10T01:29:44.384-07:00It has little to do with meta-analysis.

As I mentioned, if you try to compare conditions of the same study (researchers routinely do this as a part of discussion) with the help of effect sizes you won't be able to do this with the variance-based quantities. No wonder no one reports them and even if they are reported no one discusses them. <br /><br />The question of power analysis is secondary to the question what effect size you report.

And I basically agree with you on that. But I don't think standardized effect sizes are so bad for power analysis, which is what Daniel's talking about. Using standardized effect sizes lets us compute power using fewer assumed parameters, which could be beneficial because the power results depend on fewer uncertain quantities.Jake Westfallhttp://jakewestfall.org/blog/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-987850932434001559.post-76627339534914686262015-06-09T02:13:12.357-07:002015-06-09T02:13:12.357-07:00These variance-based effect sizes are all perfectl...These variance-based effect sizes are all perfectly useless. The squared errors depend on the number of factors in the Anova and the number of levels of each factor. If these numbers differ across studies or conditions it will affect the ES and you can't compare the studies/conditions. Even if the two studies are exact replications with the exact same factor structure, it may still happen that the variance varies and the ES are not comparable. <br /><br />Fortunately, there is a solution. Unstandardized regression (Anova=regression) coefficients are comparable irrespective of the number of levels and the number of factors. matushttp://simkovic.github.io/noreply@blogger.com
