Gene Glass

Gene V Glass (June 19 1940 - ), a statistician and researcher working in educational psychology and the social sciences, coined the term "meta-analysis" and illustrated its use in 1976 while a faculty member at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

The most extensive illustration of the technique was to the literature on psychotherapy outcome studies, published in 1980 by Johns Hopkins University Press under the title Benefits of Psychotherapy by Mary Lee Smith, Gene V Glass, and Thomas I. Miller.

In 1986, Glass joined the faculty of the Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona and is currently a Regents' Professor at Arizona State University in both the educational leadership and policy studies and psychology in education divisions.

In 1993, he created one of the first online, peer-reviewed scholarly journals in education, the Education Policy Analysis Archives.


He is an elected member of the National Academy of Education. In 2006, he was honored with the Distinguished Contributions to Educational Research Award of the American Educational Research Association.
