Denny, Mark – Physics Teacher, 2019
An atlatl or spearthrower is perhaps humanity's oldest technology for accelerating projectiles. The dynamics prior to launch of the dart projectile have been much discussed in the literature. In this article we present a simple new model of launch dynamics and show that dart flex is not an important factor in determining launch speed, but it…

Ma, Wenchao; de la Torre, Jimmy – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2019
Solving a constructed-response item usually requires successfully performing a sequence of tasks. Each task could involve different attributes, and those required attributes may be "condensed" in various ways to produce the responses. The sequential generalized deterministic input noisy "and" gate model is a general cognitive…

Fink Chorzempa, Barbara; Smith, Michael D.; Sileo, Jane M. – Teacher Education and Special Education, 2019
Within their teacher preparation courses and field experiences, preservice teachers are introduced to numerous instructional practices, not all of which are considered research-based. For this reason, instruction in how to evaluate the effectiveness of one's practices is essential, but it is often a lacking component of initial certification…

Johnson, Michael Lee; Sedory, Stephen A.; Singh, Sarjinder – Sociological Methods & Research, 2019
In this article, alternative randomized response models are proposed, which make use of sum of quantitative scores generated from two decks of cards being used in a survey. The proposed methods are compared to the Odumade and Singh and Singh and Grewal models through a simulation study. It is shown that the modified methods can be used more…

Block, Per; Stadtfeld, Christoph; Snijders, Tom A. B. – Sociological Methods & Research, 2019
Two approaches for the statistical analysis of social network generation are widely used; the tie-oriented exponential random graph model (ERGM) and the stochastic actor-oriented model (SAOM) or Siena model. While the choice for either model by empirical researchers often seems arbitrary, there are important differences between these models that…

Shi, Yongren; Cameron, Christopher J.; Heckathorn, Douglas D. – Sociological Methods & Research, 2019
Respondent-driven sampling (RDS), a link-tracing sampling and inference method for studying hard-to-reach populations, has been shown to produce asymptotically unbiased population estimates when its assumptions are satisfied. However, some of the assumptions are prohibitively difficult to reach in the field, and the violation of a crucial…

Stephens, Rachel G.; Dunn, John C.; Hayes, Brett K. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
When asked to determine whether a syllogistic argument is deductively valid, people are influenced by their prior beliefs about the believability of the conclusion. Recently, two competing explanations for this belief bias effect have been proposed, each based on signal detection theory (SDT). Under a response bias explanation, people set more…
