Description

This function reproduces five of the output tables used in the systematic review paper "Meta-analysis for Families of Experiments: A Systematic Review and Reproducibility Assessment". It extracts the reported values for effect sizes, meta-analysis and descriptive statistics in the primary studies. It uses the descriptive statistics to re-calculate effect sizes and then performs a meta-analyses using the constructed effect sizes and compares the calculated values with the reported values.

Usage
