Résumé : Background Group-based social skills interventions (GSSIs) are commonly used to address the social impairments of youth with ASD. However, the administration of treatments in group formats (i.e., clusters) poses several methodological challenges including accounting for cluster effects. The most recent and comprehensive meta-analysis of RCTs of GSSIs for youth with ASD yielded an overall medium effect (g = 0.51; Gates et al., 2017). This suggested a positive effect; however, little is known about the extent to which the studies adhered to standards for conducting and reporting RCTs including standards related to group-based interventions. Method The current review assessed the extent to which the study planning, data assessment, and data analytic procedures used in the RCTs (N =18) included in the meta-analysis adhered to established standards for RCTs. Results Results were consistent across the three areas assessed and suggested an overall adherence rate of 42% (range 41%–43%). Significant variability was found within each of the three areas and suggested that few facets of the standards were met by a majority of studies. The statistically-oriented aspects were most neglected. None of the studies accounted for the group-based (clustered) design and delivery of the intervention which can negatively impact power, effect size, and precision estimates and overestimate intervention effects. Year of article publication and journal impact factor were predominantly unrelated to adherence rates. Conclusions Increased familiarization with standards for RCTs appears necessary to improve the practices of researchers, along with increased requirements for adherence by journal editors and reviewers.
