Dear Patrizio,
What kind of 'effect size' do you want to compute? One could compute the difference between the observed proportion and the expected one (50/100 - .25), or one could compute the (log transformed) ratio (log((50/100) / .25)), or one could compute the (log transformed) odds ratio (log((50/100) / ((100-50)/100) / (.25 / (1 - .25)))), or ... So which one ar you interested in?
Best,
Wolfgang

Subject: [R-meta] effect size for proportion with respect to the chance expected
Probably it is a trivial question, but I've have some doubts on how to
calculate the effect size and corresponding standard error or variance
of the difference between a proportion and its chance expectation, e.g.
n. trials = 100; n. hits = 50; chance outcome = .25.
Thank you
Patrizio
