## Calculate d and r using means and standard deviations

Calculate the value of Cohen's d and the effect-size correlation, rYl, using the means and standard deviations of two groups (treatment and control).

Cohen's d = M1 - M2 / spooled
where spooled =√[(s 12+ s 22) / 2]

rYl = d / (d2 + 4)

Note: d and rYl are positive if the mean difference is in the predicted direction.

## Calculate d and r using t values and df (separate groups t test)

Calculate the value of Cohen's d and the effect size correlation, rYl , using the t test value for a between subjects t test and the degrees of freedom.

Cohen's d = 2t /√(df)

rYl = √(t2 / (t2 + df))

Note: d and rYl are positive if the mean difference is in the predicted direction.

Warning:  Do not use a paired t-test value when computing effect sizes.  See Effect Size Lecture Notes.
