Barry, Adam E.; Valdez, Danny; Goodson, Patricia; Szucs, Leigh; Reyes, Jovanni V. – Journal of American College Health, 2019
Understanding the unique health needs of college students and establishing best practices to address them depend, heavily, on the inherent quality and contribution of the research identifying these needs. College health-focused publications currently exemplify less than ideal statistical reporting practices. Specifically, college health…

Xiao, ZhiMin; Higgins, Steve; Kasim, Adetayo – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
Lord's Paradox occurs when a continuous covariate is statistically controlled for and the relationship between a continuous outcome and group status indicator changes in both magnitude and direction. This phenomenon poses a challenge to the notion of evidence-based policy, where data are supposed to be self-evident. We examined 50 effect size…

Leite, Walter L.; Aydin, Burak; Gurel, Sungur – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
This Monte Carlo simulation study compares methods to estimate the effects of programs with multiple versions when assignment of individuals to program version is not random. These methods use generalized propensity scores, which are predicted probabilities of receiving a particular level of the treatment conditional on covariates, to remove…

Bashkov, Bozhidar M.; Clauser, Jerome C. – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2019
Successful testing programs rely on high-quality test items to produce reliable scores and defensible exams. However, determining what statistical screening criteria are most appropriate to support these goals can be daunting. This study describes and demonstrates cost-benefit analysis as an empirical approach to determining appropriate screening…

Walkup, John R.; Key, Roger A.; Talbot, Patrick R. M. – Physics Education, 2019
A lab activity for teaching physics students the fundamentals of statistical analysis during the first few weeks of instruction is described. This activity involves students timing a pulse of light generated by an Arduino device of fixed duration with individual timers (e.g. stopwatch, iPhone timer). To select the most precise timing methods and…

Cook, Jessica; Chen, Cuixian; Reid-Griffin, Angelia – Journal of Effective Teaching in Higher Education, 2019
In a society where first hand work experience is greatly valued many universities or institutions of higher education have designed their Quality enhancement plan (QEP) to address student applied learning. This paper is the results of a university's QEP plan, called Experiencing Transformative Education Through Applied Learning or ETEAL. This…

Cao, Chunhua; Kim, Eun Sook; Chen, Yi-Hsin; Ferron, John; Stark, Stephen – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
In multilevel multiple-indicator multiple-cause (MIMIC) models, covariates can interact at the within level, at the between level, or across levels. This study examines the performance of multilevel MIMIC models in estimating and detecting the interaction effect of two covariates through a simulation and provides an empirical demonstration of…

Hoekstra, R.; Vugteveen, J.; Warrens, M. J.; Kruyen, P. M. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
Cronbach's alpha is the most frequently used measure to investigate the reliability of measurement instruments. Despite its frequent use, many warn for misinterpretations of alpha. These claims about regular misunderstandings, however, are not based on empirical data. To understand how common such beliefs are, we conducted a survey study to test…

De Raadt, Alexandra; Warrens, Matthijs J.; Bosker, Roel J.; Kiers, Henk A. L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
Cohen's kappa coefficient is commonly used for assessing agreement between classifications of two raters on a nominal scale. Three variants of Cohen's kappa that can handle missing data are presented. Data are considered missing if one or both ratings of a unit are missing. We study how well the variants estimate the kappa value for complete data…

Son, Sookyoung; Lee, Hyunjung; Jang, Yoona; Yang, Junyeong; Hong, Sehee – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
The purpose of the present study is to compare nonnormal distributions (i.e., t, skew-normal, skew-t with equal skew and skew-t with unequal skew) in growth mixture models (GMMs) based on diverse conditions of a number of time points, sample sizes, and skewness for intercepts. To carry out this research, two simulation studies were conducted with…

Shieh, Gwowen – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
The analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) is a useful statistical procedure that incorporates covariate features into the adjustment of treatment effects. The consequences of omitted prognostic covariates on the statistical inferences of ANCOVA are well documented in the literature. However, the corresponding influence on sample-size calculations for…
