Thoemmes, Felix; MacKinnon, David P.; Reiser, Mark R. – Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2010
Applied researchers often include mediation effects in applications of advanced methods such as latent variable models and linear growth curve models. Guidance on how to estimate statistical power to detect mediation for these models has not yet been addressed in the literature. We describe a general framework for power analyses for complex…

Mackinnon, Jacquelin – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2004
This paper explores the idea that conceptualizing academic supervision (at Honours or graduate level) as a fiduciary relationship can assist supervisors in enhancing student learning through quality decision-making. In this paper I reflect on my conceptions of supervision in the light of the growing scholarship on supervision. My conceptions of…

Batterham, Philip J.; Christensen, Helen; Mackinnon, Andrew J. – Intelligence, 2009
The long-term relationship between lower intelligence and mortality risk in later life is well established, even when controlling for a range of health and sociodemographic measures. However, there is some evidence for differential effects in various domains of cognitive performance. Specifically, tests of fluid intelligence may have a stronger…

MacKinnon, Gregory R.; Williams, Peter – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2006
The notion of problem-based physics laboratories enhanced by computer technology has been coined "studio physics" (Wilson, 1994) and has been practised at various institutions for some time (Cummings, Marx, Thornton, & Kuhl, 1999; Williams, MacLatchy, Backman, & Retson, 1997). In recent years, new technology tools have been available to supplement…

What tools can we use in attempting to understand the recurring patterns of some girls' early school leaving and consequent exclusion from well-paid employment? From which disciplinary fields can we take them? Using Bourdieu's concept of the "scholastic point of view"--the inherent intellectual bias of a discipline, in his case sociology--as a…
