Park, Yoosung; Tsuchiya, Takahiro – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2021
While many studies examine tools and techniques to improve survey response rates, it remains unclear as to which are effective, and response rates continue to decline. In this study, we examine the effect of four variables expected to influence mail survey response rates: (1) the use of semi-transparent envelopes versus ordinary paper envelopes…

In the last six years, Chile has carried out major reforms in school climate policy. However, these reforms are tied to two different realities that conflict with each other: a formative reality, which promotes a school climate of local decision-making and the improvement of school performance; and a punitive reality, which prioritizes improvement…

Goris, Judith; Silvetti, Massimo; Verguts, Tom; Wiersema, Jan R.; Brass, Marcel; Braem, Senne – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2021
Recent theories propose that autism is characterized by an impairment in determining when to learn and when not. We investigated this by estimating learning rate in environments varying in volatility and uncertainty. Specifically, we correlated autistic traits (in 163 neurotypical participants) with modelled learning behaviour during probabilistic…

Seah, Ming Li Carol; Koh, Koon Teck – European Physical Education Review, 2021
Smartphones are omnipresent and offer real-time information on the go. Predominantly, adolescent girls have been found to be engaged in levels of physical activity (PA) below the daily recommended guideline of at least 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous intensity, and especially during weekends. Lack of sufficient PA can lead to a risk of…

Veryaeva, Kseniya; Solovyeva, Olga – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2021
Gamification becomes an important and widely used instrument in online learning, and it affects users' experience. However, recent research on the interaction between a user and technology, in the online learning platform, tends to study gamification separately. This paper aims to overcome the research gap, exploring the relationships between user…

Stocco, Andrea; Prat, Chantel S.; Graham, Lauren K. – Cognitive Science, 2021
The ability to reason and problem-solve in novel situations, as measured by the Raven's Advanced Progressive Matrices (RAPM), is highly predictive of both cognitive task performance and real-world outcomes. Here we provide evidence that RAPM performance depends on the ability to reallocate attention in response to self-generated feedback about…

Alkire, Diana; Warnell, Katherine Rice; Kirby, Laura Anderson; Moraczewski, Dustin; Redcay, Elizabeth – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2021
The social symptoms of autism spectrum disorder are likely influenced by multiple psychological processes, yet most previous studies have focused on a single social domain. In school-aged autistic children (n = 49), we compared the amount of variance in social symptoms uniquely explained by theory of mind (ToM), biological motion perception,…
