Holden, Ronald R.; Marjanovic, Zdravko; Troister, Talia – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Indiscriminate (i.e., carless, random, insufficient effort) responses, commonly believed to weaken effect sizes and produce Type II errors, can inflate effect sizes and potentially produce Type I errors where a supposedly significant result is actually artifactual. We demonstrate how indiscriminate responses can produce spuriously high…

Nitkowski, Dennis; Fern, Julia; Petermann, Ulrike; Petermann, Franz; Zeman, Janice L. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
In Germany, there are no self-report questionnaires assessing emotion awareness in youth under the age of 16 years or simultaneously with emotion suppression. The "Emotion Expression Scale for Children" (EESC) measuring lack of emotion awareness and reluctance to express emotions in 10- to 15-year-olds can fill this gap. Goal of this…
