Health of the Nation Outcome Scales for Children and Adolescents (HoNOSCA)
Table 1: Paired Samples T Test
|Client Rated||22.62 (8.78)||16.83 (10.52)||3.67||42||.001||.56|
|Father Rated||20.91 (9.64)||11.16 (7.13)||4.65||23||.000||.94|
Table 2: Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test
|Clinician Rated||14.04 (6.13)||8.02 (4.12)||5.171||.000||.55|
|Mother Rated||22.44 (8.95)||12.97 (8.58)||4.61||.000||.53|
In order for the analysis to be run, each participant had to have a pre and a post score on the measure. Hence, the completion rates reported are not representative of all the data in the sample, but rather relate solely to the complete data, which can be analysed in this way.
A significant decrease between total scores for the self-rated HoNOSCA was apparent at the post intervention time point (t (42) = 3.67 p = <.01), reflecting a medium effect size (Cohen’s d: .56). A Wilcoxon Signed Rank test also revealed a statistically significant decrease in Clinician’s rated HoNOSCA scores at the post intervention time point (z= 5.17, p <.01), with a large effect size (r=.55)
A significant decrease in total scores was also identified post intervention on mother’s rated HoNOSCA (z=4.61, p <.01), which had a large effect size( r=.53); and on father’s rated HoNOSCA (t (23) = 4.65; p=<.01), which had a large effect size (Cohen’s d: .94).
