The main objective of this article is to analyse informal learning processes in the field of video games. As many teenagers are engaged in these kinds of practices, the big question is: How do teens learn to play video games? In most cases they do not learn to play video games at school or with their parents, and therefore it is necessary to map…

Zhang, Zhiyong; Liu, Haiyan – Grantee Submission, 2018
Latent change score models (LCSMs) proposed by McArdle (McArdle, 2000, 2009; McArdle & Nesselroade, 1994) offer a powerful tool for longitudinal data analysis. They are becoming increasingly popular in social and behavioral research (e.g., Gerstorf et al., 2007; Ghisletta & Lindenberger, 2005; King et al., 2006; Raz et al., 2008). Although…

Bai, Haiyan; Sivo, Stephen A.; Pan, Wei; Fan, Xitao – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2016
Among the commonly used resampling methods of dealing with small-sample problems, the bootstrap enjoys the widest applications because it often outperforms its counterparts. However, the bootstrap still has limitations when its operations are contemplated. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to examine an alternative, new resampling method…

Cai, Tianji; Xia, Yiwei; Zhou, Yisu – Sociological Methods & Research, 2021
Analysts of discrete data often face the challenge of managing the tendency of inflation on certain values. When treated improperly, such phenomenon may lead to biased estimates and incorrect inferences. This study extends the existing literature on single-value inflated models and develops a general framework to handle variables with more than…

Zaidi, Nikki L.; Swoboda, Christopher M.; Kelcey, Benjamin M.; Manuel, R. Stephen – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2017
The extant literature has largely ignored a potentially significant source of variance in multiple mini-interview (MMI) scores by "hiding" the variance attributable to the sample of attributes used on an evaluation form. This potential source of hidden variance can be defined as rating items, which typically comprise an MMI evaluation…

Padilla, Miguel A.; Divers, Jasmin – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
Coefficient omega and alpha are both measures of the composite reliability for a set of items. Unlike coefficient alpha, coefficient omega remains unbiased with congeneric items with uncorrelated errors. Despite this ability, coefficient omega is not as widely used and cited in the literature as coefficient alpha. Reasons for coefficient omega's…
