  • A psychometric evaluation of teacher homework involvement scale in online
           learning environments
    • Authors: Fuyi Yang; Jianzhong Xu
      Abstract: The current study evaluated the psychometric properties of the Teacher Homework Involvement Scale (THIS) for undergraduates in online environments. Based on a randomized divided sample, we carried out CFA with Group 1 (n = 306) and Group 2 (n = 306), respectively. CFA findings from both groups indicated that THIS contained three factors: Homework Quality, Autonomy Support, and Feedback Quality. Results further revealed that there was measurement invariance between these two groups. In addition, our findings revealed that latent factor means were invariant across gender for both groups combined. Furthermore, the THIS showed very good to excellent reliability. Finally, consistent with theoretical expectations, the THIS was positively associated with desirable behaviors regarding online homework assignments (effort, time management, and completion), online course quality, and online course satisfaction.

  • When saying that you are biased means that you are acurate' The
           moderating effect of cognitive structuring on relationship between
           metacognitive self and confirmation bias use
    • Authors: Yoram Bar-Tal; Hanna Brycz; Barbara Dolinska; Dariusz Dolinski
      Abstract: The aim of our study was to answer two questions: 1. How accurate are the reports of people who assert they are biased' 2. Why do people who know they are biased tend to engage in more inappropriate behavior' A total of 340 undergraduate students participated in the study. They followed a special procedure measuring cognitive structuring, efficacy to fulfill personal need to achieve cognitive structuring, metacognitive self (i.e. self-awareness of biases), and the level of performed confirmation bias. The procedure was created for investigating confirmation bias concerning the perception of self versus others. The first question may be answered by the assertion that the more metacognitive self-awareness of biases a person possesses, the more confirmation bias they exhibit. The pattern of results concerning the second issue demonstrates that only efficacy to fulfill personal need for structure (EFEN) moderates the relationship between metacognitive self and confirmation bias. Thus, only low-EFEN individuals perceived the extent of their use of biases more accurately. We explain the effect in terms of cognitive processing style: an individual inclination for piecemeal processes.

  • Autonomy-supportive behaviors promote autonomous motivation, knowledge
           structures, motor skills learning and performance in physical education
    • Authors: Behzad Behzadnia; Hasan Mohammadzadeh; Malek Ahmadi
      Abstract: Previous research provides evidence as to the influence of teachers’ autonomy-supportive behaviors on students’ autonomous motivation in physical education (PE). However, few studies have considered the impact of teachers’ autonomy-supportive behaviors on enhancing knowledge structures and motor skills learning in PE. The present study investigated whether an autonomy-supportive intervention designed to promote motor skills learning (experimental group), compared with conventional teaching (control group), would increase autonomous motivation, knowledge structures, skill learning, and performance and whether it decrease controlled motivation in students over a semester. Twenty-eight PE students participated in this quasi-experimental study. Badminton skills were assessed in pre and post intervention and retention sessions. Motivational regulations and knowledge structures were measured in pre and post intervention. In a session after the retention, game performance was measured on the transfer test. Overall, the experimental group and the hypothesized process model were supported. The experimental group demonstrated greater mean scores in some skills in post and retention tests. Compared to students in the control group, students in the experimental group reported greater autonomous motivation and game performance in the post-test. Furthermore, knowledge structures in both groups improved. Promoting skill learning in an autonomy-supportive way, compared with conventional teaching, has important practical implications for PE programs. We conclude that the intervention was successful in enhancing students’ autonomous motivation and performance.

  • Decisional Procrastination: Assessing Characterological and Contextual
           Variables around Indecision
    • Authors: Joseph R. Ferrari; Kendall P. Crum; Matthew A. Pardo
      Abstract: University students (n = 75; M age = 21.4 years old) and community adults (n = 55: M age = 36.6 years old) completed self-reported measures of decisional procrastination (indecision), character (life satisfaction, meaningful life, and need for cognition), context (place attachment, sense of community, and psychological home) and “cross-over” factors relating character and context (self-identity with possessions, people/thing orientation, and clutter), to provide an ecological understanding of persons who claim indecision. Controlling for social desirability tendencies, indecision was negatively related to all character but none of the context variables. Indecision also was related to both person and thing orientation and clutter. Multiple regression analysis indicated that only need for cognition significantly predicted (negatively) indecision among character, context, and cross-over variable sets. Subjective well-being also predicted indecision with low need for cognition among cross-over variables. Taken together, decisional procrastinators reported too much clutter (stuff), interfering with a positive quality of life and related to character over context and cross-over, ecological variables.

  • Roles and postpartum distress: The mediating role of relationship
    • Authors: Sara E. Boeding; Donald H. Baucom; Matthew J. Cohen; Samantha Meltzer-Brody; Anna Brandon
      Abstract: Despite many prevailing societal beliefs, parents often experience mood and anxiety symptoms during the postpartum period, often referred to as postpartum distress (PPD). The aim of this study was to explicate whether aspects of role functioning during the postpartum period are associated with PPD, and whether this association may be partially explained by relationship adjustment. Seventy-three couples and an additional nine women who were 4–12 weeks postpartum participated in this study. Results indicate that men’s experience of role unacceptability predicted their own greater PPD symptoms which were partially mediated by their own poorer relationship adjustment, as well as women’s poorer relationship adjustment. Additionally, women’s work-family strain predicted their own greater PPD symptoms as well as men’s greater relationship adjustment. These results serve to highlight several key aspects of men’s and women’s postpartum role functioning and the associations that they share with postpartum distress symptoms. Implications for research and clinical work are discussed.

  • The Effect of Self-Compassion on Impulsivity Provoked by a Reduction in
    • Authors: Richard H Morley
      Abstract: The focus of this study was to investigate the role of self-compassion on impulsivity after a negative event. To accomplish this task a study was conducted among college students to examine the role that self-compassion plays in emotional regulation and self-regulation following a negative experience. This analysis involved measuring self-esteem, negative affect, and impulsivity. The scales in this study were administered prior to and after the college students took their first statistics test. Students displayed a significant decrease in self-esteem, a significant increase in negative affect, and a significant increase in impulsivity. When self-compassion was included as a covariate, the only significant change was a decline in self-esteem. Moreover, the analysis revealed a significant interaction between self-compassion and changes over time. Implications and limitations of these results were discussed.

  • Authoritarian leadership and employees’ unsafe behaviors: The mediating
           roles of organizational cynicism and work alienation
    • Authors: Hongyan Jiang; Yang Chen; Peizhen Sun; Chen Li
      Abstract: This study examined the relationship between authoritarian leadership and employees’ unsafe behaviors, and the mediating roles of organizational cynicism and work alienation. Questionnaires were distributed to first-line production employees, and structural equation modeling was employed to test the hypotheses. The results showed that organizational cynicism mediated the relationship between authoritarian leadership and employees’ unsafe behaviors. Furthermore, authoritarian leadership was related to employees’ unsafe behaviors through organizational cynicism first and then work alienation. The theoretical implications of these findings for advancing the research and practical approaches to reduce employees’ unsafe behaviors are discussed.

  • African American student achievement and the historically Black
           University: the role of student engagement
    • Authors: Alexander T. Shappie; Scott M. Debb
      Abstract: Student engagement is associated with a variety of positive outcomes, including student achievement, satisfaction, and persistence to degree completion. While previous research has demonstrated a positive relationship between student engagement and learning outcomes within individual courses, the literature has yet to investigate this relationship at a historically Black college or university (HBCU). The theory of intercultural effort suggests that minority students must put forth additional effort in to their studies in order to succeed in an academic environment that favors students from the majority race or culture, such as what is commonly observed at predominantly white universities. In contrast, African American students who attend HBCUs may benefit from a campus climate that is sensitive to their needs and culture of origin. Thus, the present study examined the role of student engagement for predicting student achievement among an African American undergraduate sample from a HBCU (N = 241). Using each student’s final grade in a psychology course, a regression model predicted student achievement (R2 = .265, p < .001), and student engagement remained significant over-and-above the effect of student demographic variables. These findings highlight the importance of improving African American students’ perceptions about their ability to succeed academically, suggesting that African American students who consistently put effort in to their course and believed that they could succeed did indeed perform higher than their peers. Other significant predictors of student achievement included student age, gender, and the number of years that they had attended college. Limitations and future directions are discussed.

  • An Exploration of the Family Resilience Needs of a Rural Community in
           South Africa: A Sequential Explanatory Mixed Methodological Study Design
    • Authors: Serena Ann Isaacs; Nicolette V. Roman; Shazly Savahl
      Abstract: The aim of the study is to identify and explore family resilience needs in a rural community in the West Coast region of South Africa. An explanatory mixed methodological sequential design was implemented. Firstly, Sixbey’s (2005) Family Resilience Assessment Scale, was employed to conduct the quantitative assessment via a door-to-door sample of convenience identified with the assistance of a local non-governmental organisation. Of the 656 participants, 39.8% were male and 60.2% were female, with an average age of 37.90 years (standard deviation 13.92). Secondly, four focus groups involving 27 community participants provided qualitative data. Results from the quantitative assessment show that family connectedness and utilising social and economic resources were the lowest scoring, and belief systems the highest scoring, dimensions in family resilience. Based on the quantitative findings and the discussions, three thematic categories emerged: community and family challenges; community belief systems; and current family functioning and organisational patterns. A number of families and groups within the community were able to provide feedback, recommendations and work collaboratively in this study. This contributed to the argument we make for the transformative mixed methods paradigm that is discussed. This study provides further insight into the theory of family resilience.

  • Perpetrating Cyber Dating Abuse: A Brief Report on the Role of Aggression,
           Romantic Jealousy and Gender
    • Authors: Heather Deans; Manpal Singh Bhogal
      Abstract: There is increasing evidence that the use of electronic communication technology (ECT) is being integrated into romantic relationships, which can be used as a medium to control a romantic partner. Most research focuses on the victims of cyber dating abuse, however, we focused on the factors that predict perpetration of cyber dating abuse. We explored whether aggression (verbal aggression, physical aggression, anger and hostility), romantic jealousy (emotional, cognitive and behavioral jealousy), and gender predicted perpetration of cyber dating abuse (n = 189). We found that hostility, behavioral jealousy and gender significantly predicted perpetration of cyber dating abuse. The findings of this study contribute to our understanding of the psychological factors that drive cyber dating abuse in romantic relationships.

  • Be creative as proactive' the impact of creative self-efficacy on
           employee creativity: a proactive perspective
    • Authors: Yanhong Chen; Li Zhang
      Abstract: We develop and test a theoretical model of moderated mediation in which feedback-seeking behavior serves as an intervening mechanism that explains the association between creative self-efficacy and employee creativity. We also consider how regulatory focus influences the intervening role of feedback-seeking behavior in the creative self-efficacy-employee creativity relationship. To test our hypotheses, we conducted a Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) with 331 subordinate–supervisor dyads from northeast China. In support of our hypotheses, feedback-seeking behavior mediated the relation between creative self-efficacy and individual creativity, and this mediation effect was moderated by promotion focus. We discuss implications of the study and offer suggestions for future research.

  • Feedback, Sport-Confidence and Performance of Lacrosse Skills
    • Authors: Alexis Gagnon-Dolbec; Stuart J. McKelvie; Joseph Eastwood
      Abstract: This study investigated the relationship between sport-confidence and athletic performance. Fifty male lacrosse players competed against each other three times on three lacrosse skills. Sport-confidence was assessed before each trial using a modified version of the State Sport-Confidence Inventory (SSCI). Performance feedback was manipulated to boost confidence in some players and diminish it in others. Over trials, self-reported confidence increased with positive (winning) feedback and decreased with negative (losing) feedback, but lacrosse performance remained stable. When sport-confidence was treated as a subject variable, performance did not differ between players who were higher or lower in confidence. These results are inconsistent with the claim that confidence influences performance.

  • The Priming Effect of a Facial Expression of Surprise on the
           Discrimination of a Facial Expression of Fear
    • Authors: Fernando Gordillo; Lilia Mestas; Miguel Ángel Pérez; Eduardo Alejandro Escotto; José M. Arana
      Abstract: The emotions of fear and surprise share different characteristics in terms of expressive and evaluative aspects. Certain authors therefore contend that they could be part of the same emotional category for responding quickly to sudden dangers. This research was designed to analyse the facilitatory role of the expression of surprise in the discrimination of the expression of fear, and the possible modulation of the visual context in this relationship. The study involved 40 emotional facial expressions (10 neutral ones, 10 of fear, 10 of surprise, and 10 of anger) taken from the NimStim Face Stimulus Set database (Tottenham et al. 2009), and 60 photographs (20 negative ones, 20 neutral ones, and 20 positive ones) taken from the International Affective Picture System (IAPS; Lang et al. 1999). In an initial experiment, a priming paradigm was used to establish two levels in the Prime variable (facial expression of surprise and a neutral one) and two levels in the Target variable (facial expression of fear and anger), maintaining a prime display time of 50 ms. The results revealed a facilitating effect of the surprise prime on the expression of fear, but not on that of anger. In a second experiment, using the same paradigm but with the variables Visual context (negative, neutral and positive) and Prime (facial expression of surprise and a neutral one), the facilitatory effect of surprise on the discrimination of fear was maintained only when the visual context was neutral. The discussion focuses on the relationship between surprise and fear, and the modulating role of the emotional visual context.

  • Exploring the Role of Messenger Effects and Feedback Frames in Promoting
           Uptake of Energy-Efficient Technologies
    • Authors: Rebecca Hafner; David Elmes; Daniel Read
      Abstract: The persuasive potential for varying messenger types and feedback frames to increase pro-environmental choice was explored in a 2 (feedback frame: financial vs. environmental) × 5 (messenger type: neighbour, government, industry, utilities vs. control) factorial design experiment. Using the context of home heating choice, 493 non-student participants were given information on either the financial or environmental benefits of selecting an energy-efficient heat pump versus a standard boiler, as described by one of four messenger types (versus a no-messenger control). Likelihood of selecting the ‘green’ technology was assessed, as well as any carry-over effects on real-life behavioural intentions. Additionally, we assessed the messenger attributes that appeared to be most important in this context, in terms of whether sources that were perceived to be trustworthy, knowledgeable, or a combination of both dimensions, would hold greater sway over preference formation. Overall, no evidence was found for any impact of messenger type on either preference formation or behavioural intentions. However, message content (i.e. how information on the benefits of pro-environmental choice was framed), was found to have substantial impact on behaviour; with the financial versus environmental decision frame being significantly more likely to encourage uptake of the energy-efficient versus standard technology. We suggest that the level of processing required for the kinds of large-scale purchase decisions we consider here may explain the lack of any messenger effect on choice behaviour. Implications for the development of behaviour change interventions designed to promote consideration of energy-efficient technologies in this context are discussed.

  • Can Various Identity Statuses Justify Iranian Adolescents’
    • Authors: Marzieh Norozpour; Banafsheh Gharraee; Mojtaba Habibi; Ahmad Ashouri; Nasim Mousavi
      Abstract: The present research aims to study the personality profile of adolescents in different identity statuses using “Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory- Adolescent” (MMPI-A); it then attempts to answer the question whether there are any significant differences between these profiles at different identity statuses. To this end, 506 adolescents (273 male and 233 female), who aged 15 to 18 years old, answered MMPI-A and Ego Identity Process Questionnaires. The obtained results indicated that adolescents’ personality profile was within the normal range for identity statuses of foreclosure, moratorium, and diffusion. Also, the score of adolescents who were in any of these statuses did not reveal any significant difference. This study shows that MMPI-A can assess adolescents’ psychopathology through their various identity statuses.

  • What is Feminism' College Students’ Definitions and Correlates
    • Authors: Shirley Matile Ogletree; Paulette Diaz; Vincent Padilla
      Abstract: Feminism may have different meanings to different people. Three Texas college student samples (N = 272, N = 156, N = 404) were surveyed and provided information about their definitions of feminism as well as their gender role and sexist attitudes. Based on gender comparison MANOVAs, women agreed more with defining feminism from a liberal feminist perspective that focused on male/female similarities and equal rights. Men, however, were more likely to define feminism from a man-hating perspective (Studies 1 and 3). Defining feminism from a liberal feminist perspective was correlated with a womanist, more inclusive, perspective, but defining feminism from a man-hating perspective was related to cultural feminist perspectives that identified differing male/female characteristics/values (Studies 2 and 3). Across all three studies defining feminism from a liberal feminist perspective was associated with nontraditional gender role attitudes and less sexism. However, perceiving feminists as man-haters was related to more traditional values and more sexist attitudes. In each of the three studies, fewer than half of the participants indicated that they were feminists. Although many college students define feminism from a liberal feminism perspective associated with less traditional gendered values, others may be more likely to think of feminists with more negative connotations.

  • Psychometric Properties of the Turkish Brief Symptom Measure-25
    • Authors: İ. Volkan Gülüm; Gonca Soygüt
      Abstract: The Brief Symptom Measure-25 (BSM-25) is a quick and self-administrated measurement, which was originally developed to assess general psychiatric symptomatology. The aim of the present study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Turkish BSM-25. The non-clinical sample consisted of 382 adult participants (71.5% were female) and the clinical sample consisted of 42 adult participants (76.2% were female). To test the psychometric properties of the Turkish BSM-25, we performed a series of analyses including basic explanatory factor analysis, bifactor modeling, bivariate correlation, one-way ANOVA, and ROC analysis. The results indicated that the Turkish BSM-25 had a high level of internal consistency (.92) and acceptable fit indices (RMSEA = .07, CFI = .95 GFI = .97 NNFI = .94). Furthermore, the Turkish BSM-25 successfully discriminated the clinical and non-clinical samples and showed strong validity. The cut-off score was 70.50. In conclusion, the present study provided empirical support for the psychometric adequacy of the Turkish BSM-25 and yielded one general factor.

  • Mapping the Paths from Language Proficiency to Adaptation for Chinese
           Students in a Non-English Speaking Country: an Integrative Model of
    • Authors: Chun Cao; Qian Meng
      Abstract: Non-native English speaking international students residing in non-English speaking countries were found to face the challenges from inadequate command of both English and the host language. This study simultaneously examined the influences of language proficiency (i.e., English proficiency and local language proficiency) on social and academic adaptation, through the mediating variables of social connectedness in mainstream society and social support satisfaction among Chinese international students in a non-English speaking European country. A sample of 202 Chinese international students responded to a web-based survey. Results from structural equation modeling analysis indicated that English and local language proficiency explained 42% of the total variance in social connectedness in mainstream society; social connectedness in mainstream society explained 68% of the variance in satisfaction with support from host members; taken together, social support satisfaction and English proficiency accounted for 47% of the variance in social adaptation and 22% in academic adaptation, respectively. Results from the bootstrapping method also revealed that social connectedness and social support satisfaction fully mediated the relationships between local language proficiency and social/academic adaptation and partially mediated the relationships between English proficiency and social/academic adaptation.

  • Counterfactual Thinking About In-Group Versus Out-Group Others
    • Authors: Hyeman Choi; Hoon-Seok Choi
      Abstract: The present research examined how the social category of a target (i.e., in-group versus out-group member) influences the nature of counterfactual thoughts people generate about the target. In Experiment 1, we found a marginally significant interaction effect such that participants generated more target-focused counterfactuals in response to a negative outcome that involved an in-group than an out-group target when the outcome was mildly negative, whereas this difference did not emerge when the outcome was severely negative. In Experiment 2, provision of an opportunity to affirm an important aspect of one’s self-concept allowed participants to generate more target-focused counterfactuals for an in-group than an out-group target, even when the outcome was severely negative. By contrast, participants in the non-affirmation condition did not show such a difference. Taken together, these results suggest that counterfactual thinking about others can be directed by self-related motives (i.e., self-preparative and self-protective motives) associated with the effects of social categorization and the severity of the negative outcome.

  • Neuroticism and Emotion Regulation Predict Attention Performance during
           Positive Affect
    • Authors: Tharaki Siyaguna; Samantha K. Myhre; Brandon T. Saxton; Paul D. Rokke
      Abstract: Most studies of personality and attention have focused on negative affect and psychopathology. We predicted that to the extent that personality characteristics involve the ability to control emotion and attention, the same principles would apply whether the circumstances involved negative or positive affect. Participants completed a dual-task attention experiment under conditions of positive affect, involving both low and high arousal. It was found that self-reported poorer attentional control, higher levels of neuroticism, and more difficulties in emotion regulation predicted greater differences in performance between low and high arousal conditions. Rumination styles did not predict differences in performance among these conditions. The demonstration of disruptions in attention by arousal during positive affect raises important questions about the interactions among individual differences, arousal, and mechanisms of attention.
