From the Paper:

"Turning to Jenkins and Fuchs, they are aided by the fact that their sample size of 113 students is considerably larger than the relatively puny sample sizes offered by Calhoon and by Yurick et al. Furthermore, Jenkins and Fuchs employ correlation and hierarchical regression analysis to determine the accuracy and validity of their findings; Yurick et al do not employ anything approximating this. Finally, Calhoon does use the WJ-III Compu-score and Profiles Program in addition to ANOVA - but her sample size is so tiny (only 38 students) that one is left to wonder how truly reflective it really is."
