Farida Agus Setiawati; Tria Widyastuti; Kartika Nur Fathiyah; Tiara Shafa Nabila – European Journal of Psychology and Educational Research, 2024
Data obtained through questionnaires sometimes respond to the items presented by social norms, so sometimes they do not suit themselves. High social desirability (SD) in non-cognitive measurements will cause item bias. Several ways are used to reduce item bias, including freeing respondents from not writing their names or being anonymous,…

Raquan Clinton – ProQuest LLC, 2024
The current study investigated beliefs, training, exposure, and barriers among 100 school psychologists' clinical practice when serving LGBTQ students.

Hies, Oliver; Lewis, Michael B. – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2022
The sanitary-mask effect (Miyazaki and Kawahara in Jpn Psychol Res 58(3):261-272, 2016) is the finding that medical face masks prompt an image of disease and thus result in lower ratings of facial attractiveness of the wearer. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, medical masks have been found to increase attractiveness (Patel et al. in Plast…

Nazari, Sanaz; Leite, Walter L.; Huggins-Manley, A. Corinne – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2023
Social desirability bias (SDB) has been a major concern in educational and psychological assessments when measuring latent variables because it has the potential to introduce measurement error and bias in assessments. Person-fit indices can detect bias in the form of misfitted response vectors. The objective of this study was to compare the…

Minghui Yao; Yunjie Xu – Sociological Methods & Research, 2024
As a crucial method in organizational and social behavior research, self-report surveys must manage method bias. Method biases are distorted scores in survey response, distorted variance in variables, and distorted relational estimates between variables caused by method designs. Studies on method bias have focused on "post hoc"…

Martin Bäckström; Fredrik Björklund – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2024
The forced-choice response format is often considered superior to the standard Likert-type format for controlling social desirability in personality inventories. We performed simulations and found that the trait information based on the two formats converges when the number of items is high and forced-choice items are mixed with regard to…

Julia Meisters; Adrian Hoffmann; Jochen Musch – Sociological Methods & Research, 2024
Indirect questioning techniques such as the randomized response technique aim to control social desirability bias in surveys of sensitive topics. To improve upon previous indirect questioning techniques, we propose the new Cheating Detection Triangular Model. Similar to the Cheating Detection Model, it includes a mechanism for detecting…

Zimbalist, Zack – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2022
Public attitude surveys provide invaluable data for assessing perceptions, values, and attitudes across societies and over time. Ideally, respondents feel secure to disclose accurate information (avoiding reporting bias and item non-response) in the context of a face-to-face interview. Yet, survey research seldom accounts for peer effects caused…

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of community service participation on undergraduates' social capital development, including whether any potential effects are conditional on students' race/ethnicity, parents' or guardians' education, and social class. I used a propensity score analysis on a multi-institutional sample of…

Woodland management is critical for ensuring forests are sustainably managed, yet few forest landowners have management plans and are often unsure of where to turn for advice. In New York State, the Master Forest Owner (MFO) Volunteer program provides free support from trained volunteers, however participation in the program has declined since…

Sengupta-Irving, Tesha – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2021
Neoliberal logics, a form of racial capitalism, adjudicate children as smart, able, and desirable (or not) in schools. I explore the social processes and structural arrangements by which such logics position a Latina mathematics student as "undesirable" in her class. Drawing on data collected over a year, the analysis lays bare how…

Sriken, Julie; Sherman, Martin F.; Erford, Bradley T.; MacInerney, Erin; Zhou, Anqi; Smith, Heather – Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, 2023
This study explored the psychometric characteristics of the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) on a sample of 414 university undergraduate students (M age = 19.07, SD = 0.95). Internal consistency ([alpha] = 0.83), external divergent validity, and internal structural validity were adequate; the 2-factor model provided the best fit…

This study addressed whether gender, social desirability, statistics levels, and statistics self-efficacy can significantly predict variation in statistics anxiety at the graduate level. Statistics anxiety undermines performance throughout academia and reduces employment opportunities that require skills in statistics. Previous studies have…

Bonetto, Eric; Pichot, Nicolas; Girandola, Fabien; Bonnardel, Nathalie – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2021
Many studies mention the social valorization of creative individuals. However, previous works show contrasting results concerning both this valorization and the links between creativity and the two dimensions of social judgment (individuals' warmth and competence). Consequently, we implemented two paradigms classically used when examining the…
