Measuring flexibility: A text-mining approach (open access)

Measuring flexibility: A text-mining approach

Article describes how, in creativity research, ideational flexibility, the ability to generate ideas by shifting between concepts, has long been the focus of investigation. Here, the authors build from extant research to theoretically posit, and then empirically validate, a text-mining based method for measuring flexibility in verbal divergent thinking (DT) responses.

The Influence of Context on the Abstraction Level of Children’s Conversations in the Preschool Classroom (open access)

The Influence of Context on the Abstraction Level of Children’s Conversations in the Preschool Classroom

Article asserts that despite the numerous studies on the linguistic environment of early childhood education settings (ECE), most of this work disregards contextual factors that may influence abstract conversations and omits characteristics of children’s verbal participation in these interactions. The authors of the article examine how preschool classroom contexts influenced the abstraction level of children’s conversations and how the context and conversational partners’ language influenced children’s verbal participation.

Social Emotional Learning Competencies in Belize Children: Psychometric Validation Through Exploratory Structural Equation Modeling

Article presents a study that demonstrates the application of Exploratory Structural Equation Modeling to existing measures through the investigation of structural validity and generalizability of the Social-Emotional and Character Development Scale with a large sample of children from schools in Belize. Using this newer factor analytic procedure, original factors are reconceptualized to better situate the Social Emotional Character Development Scales into the larger body of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies literature.

Longitudinal Effects of Motivation and Physical Activity on Depressive Symptoms among College Students

This article is guided by Lubans et al.'s conceptual framework and examines the longitudinal relationships of physical activity (PA) motivation with leisure-time PA and depressive symptoms among college students over one academic year. The findings suggest sex-specified motivational intervention strategies and PA promotion programs/opportunities are needed to reduce depression symptoms among college students over time.

Comparing the Bayesian Unknown Change-Point Model and Simulation Modeling Analysis to Analyze Single Case Experimental Designs

This article compares two simulation-driven approaches: Bayesian unknown change-point model (BUCP) and simulation modeling analysis (SMA) for three real datasets that exhibit “clear” immediacy, “unclear” immediacy, and delayed effects. In the final analysis, it is recommended that both visual and statistical analyses be conducted for a thorough analysis of SCEDs.

A Bayesian Rate Ratio Effect Size to Quantify Intervention Effects for Count Data in Single Case Experimental Research

This article formulates a within-subject Bayesian rate ratio effect size (BRR) for autocorrelated count data that would obviate the need for small sample corrections. The authors illustrate this within-subject effect size using real data for an ABAB design and provide codes for practitioners who may want to compute BRR.
