Utility G*Power

The accuracy of a statistical test is very dependent upon the sample size. The larger the sample size, the more reliable will be the test’s results. The accuracy of a statistical test is specified as the Power of the test. A statistical test’s Power is the probability that the test will detect an effect of a given size at a given level of significance (alpha). The relationships are as follows:

α (“alpha”) = Level of Significance = 1 – Level of Confidence

α = probability of a type 1 error (a false positive)

α = probability of detecting an effect where there is none

Β (“beta”) = probability of a type 2 error (a false negative)

Β = probability of not detecting a real effect

1 - Β = probability of detecting a real effect

Power = 1 - Β

Power needs to be clarified further. Power is the probability of detecting a real effect *of a given size at a given Level of Significance (alpha)* at a given total sample size and number of groups.

The term Power can be described as the accuracy of a statistical test. The Power of a statistical test is related with alpha, sample size, and effect size in the following ways:

1) The larger the sample size, the larger is a test’s Power because a larger sample size increases a statistical test’s accuracy.

2) The larger alpha is, the larger is a test’s Power because a larger alpha reduces the amount of confidence needed to validate a statistical test’s result. Alpha = 1 – Level of Confidence. The lower the Level of Confidence needed, the more likely a statistical test will detect an effect.

3) The larger the specified effect size, the larger is a test’s Power because a larger effect size is more likely to be detected by a statistical test.

If any three of the four related factors (Power, alpha, sample size, and effect size) are known, the fourth factor can be calculated. These calculations can be very tedious. Fortunately there are a number of free utilities available online that can calculate a test’s Power or the sample size needed to achieve a specified Power. One very convenient and easy-to-use downloadable Power calculator called G-Power is available at the following link at the time of this writing:

## Power calculations are generally

used in two ways:

### 1) *A priori*

*A priori*

- Calculation of the minimum sample size needed to achieve a specified Power to detect an effect of a given size at a given alpha. This is the most common use of Power analysis and is normally conducted *a priori* (before the test is conducted) when designing the test. A Power level of 80 percent for a given alpha and effect size is a common target. Sample size is increased until the desired Power level can be achieved. Since Power equals 1 – Β, the resulting Β of the targeted Power level represents the highest acceptable level of a type 2 error (a false negative – failing to detect a real effect). Calculation of the sample size necessary to achieve a specified Power requires three input variables:

a) **Power level **– This is often set at .8 meaning that the test has an 80 percent to detect an effect of a given size.

b) **Effect size** - Effect sizes are specified by the variable f. Effect size f is calculated from a different measure of effect size called η** ^{2}** (eta square). η

**= SS**

^{2}**/ SS**

_{Between_Groups}

_{Total}_{ }These two terms are part of the ANOVA calculations found in the Single-factor ANOVA output.

The relationship between effect size f and effect size η** ^{2}** is as follows:

Jacob Cohen in his landmark 1998 book *Statistical Analysis for the Behavior Sciences* proposed that effect sizes could be generalized as follows:

η** ^{2}** = 0.01 for a small effect. A small effect is one that not easily observable.

η** ^{2}** = 0.05 for a medium effect. A medium effect is more easily detected than a small effect but less easily detected than a large effect.

η** ^{2}** = 0.14 for a small effect. A large effect is one that is readily detected with the current measuring equipment.

The above values of η** ^{2}** produce the following values of effect size f:

f = 0.1 for a small effect.

f = 0.25 for a medium effect.

f = 0.4 for a large effect.

c)** Alpha** – This is commonly set at 0.05.

## Calculating Power With Online

Tool G Power

### 1) *A Priori*

- An example of *a priori* Power calculation would be the following. Power calculations are normally used a priori to determine the total ANOVA sample size necessary to achieve a specific Power level for detecting an effect of a specified size at a given alpha.

The single-factor ANOVA example used in this chapter has three groups. The G-Power utility could be used *a priori* in this way:

Calculate the total sample needed achieve the following parameters:

Power level = 0.8 (80 percent chance of detecting the effect)

Effect size f = 0.4 (a large effect)

Number of Groups = 3

Alpha = 0.05

The G-Power dialogue box would be filled in as follows and calculates that a total sample size of 66 would be needed have attain a Power of 0.818 (81.8 percent) to detect a large effect of effect size f = 0.4. The example used in this chapter has a total of 63 data observations. That would be nearly a large enough total size to have an 80 percent chance of detecting a large effect (f = 0.4) at an alpha = 0.05.

### 2) *Post hoc*

- Calculation of a test’s Power to detect an effect of a given size at a given alpha for a given sample size. This is usually conducted *post hoc* (after a test has been performed). If a test’s Power is deemed unacceptably low, the test’s results are usually considered invalid.

An example of a *post hoc* Power calculation would be the following. Power calculations are normally used *post hoc* to determine the current Power level of an ANOVA test for detecting an effect of a specified size at a given alpha given the total sample size.

The single-factor ANOVA example used in this chapter has three groups. The G-Power utility could be used *post hoc* in this way:

Calculate the total sample needed achieve the following parameters:

Effect size f = 0.25 (a medium effect)

Number of Groups = 3

Total sample size = 63

Alpha = 0.05

The G-Power dialogue box would be filled in as follows and calculates that this single-factor ANOVA test achieves a Power level of 0.391 (39.1 percent chance) to detect a medium effect (effect size f = 0.25) with three groups of 63 total data observations.

It's a tight decision, but I think the sleeveless polo shirt womenst takes this one! The G*Power utility for single-factor ANOVA test power is a terrific tool, but it can't compete with the look and comfort of a good ol' polo shirt.

ReplyDeleteThe fact that paperwork is not a problem for me is one hundred percent true, and also when they say that FreePaperWriter is the best assistant, because thanks to it you can easily earn A + with all writers.

ReplyDeleteLeather jackets are a great way to add a touch of style to your look and they can also keep you warm in cooler weather.

ReplyDeleteThe G*Power utility is a great tool for calculating the power of a single-factor ANOVA test. I was able to input the number of levels of the factor, the effect size, the alpha level, and the power level. The utility then outputted the required sample size for each level of the factor. This was a great help in designing my study.
