According to: http://www.qualitymetric.com/sf36/qolr_art2.pdf The SRM was calculated by dividing the observed change score of each MSQ scale by the standard deviation of the change score [36]. The SRM provides a more effective summary of the signal to noise ratio than SES because it avoids the standard error of the mean in the denominator and is therefore less influenced by sample size But I'm not still very sure of what that means.
