German term or phrase: gepoolten Streuung
This is a "fake" Kudoz, because I have been given the translation of this term (pooled variance) by the client, but I don't understand the sentence. It's a syntax problem, plus poor knowledge of statistics.

The study compares psychological issues in migrant vs. non-migrant children at two measurement points.

"Aufgrund der unterschiedlichen Stichprobengrößen erfolgte bei der Berechnung der Effektstärke die Standardisierung der Mittelwertdifferenz an der gepoolten Streuung beider Stichproben (g Hedges)."

My draft:
"Due to the varying sample sizes, the mean difference in the pooled variance of the two samples (g Hedges) was standardized to calculate the effect sizes."

Does that make any sense to those who understand statistics better than I?
