Although a greater degree of personal obesity is associated with weaker negativity toward overweight people on both explicit (i.e., self-report) and implicit (i.e., indirect behavioral) measures, overweight people still prefer thin people on average. We investigated whether the national and cultural context – particularly the national prevalence of obesity – predicts attitudes toward overweight people independent of personal identity and weight status. Data were collected from a total sample of ...

Response time data are regularly analyzed in psychology. When several response times are assessed per participant, it is common practice to use latent trait models in order to account for the dependency of the response times from the same participant. One such model is the proportional hazards model with random effects. Despite its popularity in survival analysis, this model is rarely used in psychology because of the difficulty of model estimation when latent variables are present. In this arti...

In the following we aim to approach the question of why, in most domains of professional and economic life, women are more vulnerable than men to becoming targets of prejudice and discrimination by proposing that one important cause of this inequality is the presence of gender stereotypes in many domains of society. We describe two approaches employed to measure gender stereotypes: An explicit questionnaire based on rating scales and a newly developed Implicit Association Test assessing gender s...

We investigated students' metacognitive experiences with regard to feelings of difficulty (FD), feelings of satisfaction (FS), and estimate of effort (EE), employing either computerized adaptive testing (CAT) or computerized fixed item testing (FIT). In an experimental approach, 174 students in grades 10 to 13 were tested either with a CAT or a FIT version of a matrices test. Data revealed that metacognitive experiences were not related to the resulting test scores for CAT: test takers who took ...

For computer-administered tests, response times can be recorded conjointly with the corresponding responses. This broadens the scope of potential modelling approaches because response times can be analysed in addition to analysing the responses themselves. For this purpose, we present a new latent trait model for response times on tests. This model is based on the Cox proportional hazards model. According to this model, latent variables alter a baseline hazard function. Two different approaches ...

When modeling responses and response times in tests with latent trait models, the assumption of conditional independence between responses and response times might be too strong in the case that both data are gained from reactions to the same item. In order to account for the possible dependency of responses and response times from the same item, a generalization of the model of van der Linden (2007) is proposed. The basic idea consists in the assumption of a latent continuous response that unde...

Aims: Negative experiences during the course of medical education have been reported in many countries, but little is known about the Ildiko Gagyor Nadine Hilbert perceived severity of these experiences. We studied for the first time Jean-Francois Chenot how often students at a medical university in Germany have had negative experiences, and how severe they perceive these to be. Gabriella Marx Method: We asked medical students in an online survey whether they felt adequately appreciated, had exp...

The present study addressed the relation between self-reported burnout experiences and objective performance in teachers. As an alternative to the distal long-term criteria that are usually used, we followed a new approach using tasks to assess samples of short-term behavior in simulated stressful situations. Tasks requiring low cognitive demand had to be solved in situations involving (a) task collision, (b) a hindrance of the scheduled course of action, or (c) awkward working conditions. Perfo...

With reference to EJPA’s unique and broad scope, the current study analyzed the characteristics of the authors as well as the topics and research aims of the 69 empirical articles published in the years 2009–2010. Results revealed that more than one third of the articles were written by authors affiliated with more than one country. With reference to their research aims, an almost comparable number of articles (1) presented a new measure, (2) dealt with adaptations of measures, or (3) dealt with...
