Contrast Analysis: Focused Comparisons in the Analysis of Variance.
Rosenthal, Robert; Rosnow, Ralph L.
Cambridge University Press Cambridge 1985 
  Paperback trade, very good plus condition, minimal edgewear, rubber stamp. 107 pp. Contrast analysis permits us to ask more focused questions of our data. In return for a small amount of simple computation, we get greater statistical power, and can make clearer substantive interpretations of the research results. Contrast analysis is employed in the context of the analysis of variance (ANOVA) whenever the numerator degrees of freedom are greater than one (which is most of the time). Unfortunately, it is employed rarely by behavioural and social scientists. A non-mathematical account enabling researchers to address focused questions posed by theories, hypotheses, and hunches. Many researchers in the behavioural and social sciences, education and business should find this book useful.

Contrasts and Effect Sizes in Behavioral Research: A Correlational Approach.
Rosenthal, Robert; Rosnow, Ralph L.; Rubin, Donald B.
ISBN: 0521659809
Cambridge University Press (CUP) Cambridge 2000 
  Paperback large octavo, very good condition, tables, minor edgewear. 212 pp. Examines contrasts, which are statistical procedures for asking focused questions of data. Compared to diffuse or omnibus questions, focused questions have greater conceptual clarity and greater statistical power. If an effect truly exists, we are more likely to discover it when asking focused (rather than omnibus) questions. Researchers and teachers of research methods will be introduced to the principles and procedures of contrast analysis, and also to a series of newly developed concepts, measures, and indices that permit a wider and more useful application of contrast analysis.

Design Sensitivity: Statistical Power for Experimental Research.
Lipsey, Mark W.
ISBN: 0803930631
Sage Publications Newbury Park, CA 1990 
  Paperback trade, very good plus condition, figures. 207 pp. All researchers face an important challenge - designing research that will have sufficient sensitivity to detect the effects being investigated. Sample size, reliability, validity, measurement error, subject variability and the type of statistical analysis all influence the sensitivity of a research design. Lipsey examines the concept of design sensitivity and explains statistical power and the elements that determine it. Through careful explanations and selection of examples he explores: factors that degrade design sensitivity, effect size parameters and approaches to assessing it, how to estimate statistical power for various statistical tests, and the special problems statistical power poses for treatment effectiveness research. A vital resource for evaluators, methodologists, statisticians, psychologists and public health professionals.
