English term or phrase: set size effect
These findings and findings like them (e.g., Anderson 1959; Willis 1960) led to the widely accepted conclusion that adding a new average strength positive claim or argument about a target will increase the impression of that target object, an empirical regularity that Anderson (1967) referred to as the ***set size effect***.

l'effet taille d'ensemble

Here, we seem to be talking about 'set' in the mathematical sense, where we find plenty of examples of 'taille d'ensemble' for 'set size'; here, this appears the be the effect of the size of the set (making the set bigger has some kind of effect, as is being described here...)

HOWEVER, forstly I am no expert in this field, and secondly, I obtained ZERO results when trying a Google search on the whole expression; searching for the 2 parts separately returned plenty of results, but I could find nothing relevant to the context here.

I hope this may simply be of some help for you with further research.

This EN article may help by giving a fuller definition of the term:

I also note that many source express it as "set-size effect", where the hyphen helpfully guides comprehension.
