epsilon squared

epsilon squared

(jargon)
A quantity even smaller than epsilon, as small in comparison to epsilon as epsilon is to something normal; completely negligible. If you buy a supercomputer for a million dollars, the cost of the thousand-dollar terminal to go with it is epsilon, and the cost of the ten-dollar cable to connect them is epsilon squared.

Compare lost in the underflow, lost in the noise.

The results indicated significant effects for visual impairment [F(I, 46) = 4.21, p < .05, epsilon squared = .08] and for intellectual level [F(1, 46) = 18.52, p < .001, epsilon squared = .28], but not for the interaction.
A two (severity of visual impairment) by two (level of intelligence) multivariate analysis of covariance of the set of stereotyped movement scores (body movements, manipulation of objects, and self-injurious behavior) revealed a significant effect for the covariate [F(3, 43) = 3.24, p < .05, epsilon squared = .18] and significant main effects for the extent of visual impairment [F(3, 43) = 7.18, p = .001, epsilon squared = .33] and intellectual level [F(3, 43) = 4.22, p < .05, epsilon squared = .22], but not for the interaction.
