Data Analysis and Encoding

After data collection is the transformation of the study characteristics and the effect sizes which will be the independent and dependent variables respectively. The difference between characteristics is one of the factors that explain the different effect sizes.
The important data of the study are the sample's grade level, the total number of participants, experimental group, control group participants, experimental group mean, control group average, experimental group standard deviation, control standard deviation, and its value, if necessary, the direction of the effect, value, effect size, and the notes of additional information.
Important analyze different values in different studies which will be evaluated in the research with a common unit of measurement. This common unit is the effect size. The value is utilized to make calculations from the mean differences between the experiments and control. Instead of the value, the value can be used in the calculations based on the difference between the group averages. The current analysis is performed by using CMA (Comprehensive Meta-Analysis) program is utilized to perform calculations.

The study presents a general trend of Web 2.0 tools used in every field. It was found that Web 2.0 tools like Social networks, Blogs, Wikis like Facebook, Twitter, etc. were the most used social media sites by them. As a result the findings of this study related to the above studies which state that the use of social media is quickly growing among youth.
Web 2.0 functions as a backbone for the teaching and learning process. It helps in enhancing the learning skills from both students’ and teachers' sides as well. The paper discussed various tools which will be helpful for the learning environment. Although a lot of educational organizations are using Web 2.0 technology and tools, that’s caused by a lack of other institutes behind them. This is because we lack proper training regarding the technology. The lack of physical appearance is also a big reason for interest in Web 2.0. This time we need to focus on the latest incorporated web resources in the process of growing technical knowledge. Also, it is essential the use and integrate these technological devices into our day-to-day life which will help to boost their features of development and help in creating students for better learning.
