CARDOSO, Thiago da Silva Gusmão; MELLO, Claudia Berlim de  and  FREITAS, Patrícia Martins de. Use of Effectiveness Quantitative Measures to Neuropsychological Rehabilitation. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.1, pp. 121-131. ISSN 1982-1247.

The aim of this study was to offer guidelines on the use of quantitative measures to verify the neuropsychological rehabilitation effectiveness, presenting the assumptions for the use of effect size measures. The method was literature review, based on the arbitrary choice of articles in scientific journals and books that addressed the topic. From this review, we recommend the use of effect size measures in the mensuration of the treatment effectiveness in neuropsychological rehabilitation, with special attention to Cohen's d and Cliff's delta usage, as well as the description of the statistical power of the applied tests and their respective confidence intervals.

Keywords : Treatment effectiveness evaluation; statistical measurement; neuropsychological rehabilitation.
