The aim of this research is to analyse the relevance of speed response and its regulation for learning. In order to avoid the biases of self-reports, we used a computerized objective test, The Category Learning Test (CLT). It measures the student’s actual behaviour while completing a learning task. In the first study (N = 41), we found that university students that achieved a high learning index performed slower than their mates did (t (37) = −4.05, p < .001, η2 = .307). Therefore, acting too fa...

Managing time effectively requires making decisions to plan the order of execution of different tasks, so that the maximum gain is achieved in a given period. We designed a test called My Schedule to assess time management, and we report a study of its psychometric properties. Through an online web server, we administered My Schedule along with two other objective tests, one that measures time management behaviors (Planning test) and another that assesses risk-tendency (Betting Dice test) to stu...

The aim of the present research is to assess goal orientation (mastery and performance) by developing an objective behavioral test. We elaborated the Mastery Performance-Goal Orientation Test, a task that allows assessment of goal orientation along a single dimension. We studied its reliability and validity by conducting two studies. In Study 1 (N = 293 adults), the distribution of scores along the goal orientation variable showed wide variability and high internal consistency. The mastery-orien...

In recent decades, the development of conversational agents or chatbots has increased, especially in the commercial sector. Although the first chatbot in computational history was presented as a psychotherapist, few virtual agents with this type of function have been built since then. In the present article we describe the fundamental aspects of designing a psychologist-chatbot and, more specifically, a bot with psychological assessment functions. We review the available tools and the basic conc...

The aim of this research was to study the learning process using an objective and computerized task. The performance of 466 schoolchildren aged between 6 and 11 in a category learning task, the Category Learning Test (CLT), was examined. The results showed evidence of category learning throughout the trials for the whole sample, F(7, 469) = 29.979, p <.001. In addition, categorization performance improved with age, H(2) = 48.475, p <.001. However, there were old children that struggled with the ...

espanolLa Teoria de Metas de Logro senala la existencia de estas dos estrategias u orientaciones motivacionales: la orientacion de resultado y la orientacion de aprendizaje. La primera suele asociarse a la busqueda del resultado exitoso e inmediato y la segunda a la comprension profunda y largo mayor plazo de las diversas implicaciones de una tarea. Algunos estudios senalan que los varones, en comparacion con las mujeres, tienden a desarrollar en mayor medida la orientacion de resultado. El Test...
