The results also showed that the average of the overall effect size reached for the random effect model was 1.63 with a standard error of 0.31. Furthermore, statistically significant differences can be seen in the mean of the effect sizes with respect to the period of application of the study tool variable and the sample size variable, for the period of application of 9-12 weeks and a group of less than 41 individuals, respectively.
