*TWO IMPORTANT STUDIES*
*Most mean weighted effect sizes (MWESs) exceeded alpha = .70
*Except for EurAm, non-sig Qwi stats suggest ‘homogeneity’ of MWESs
*For all 4 groups, HC and VI scales function similarly
*Six “paired comparison types”
*Only two stat sig. effects (in bold)
*All but 4 ‘corr coefficients’ were stat sig. in positive direction
*One ‘corr coefficient’ was stat sig. in negative direction
*Data suggest that the 4 HVIC subscales are less ‘orthogonal’ than previously argued
Thank you. Any questions?
