Intelligence Research Our understanding of intelligence has been — and still is — significantly influenced by the development and application of new testing procedures as well as novel computational and statistical methods. In science, methodological developments typically follow new theoretical ideas. In intelligence research, however, great breakthroughs often followed the reverse order. For instance, the once-novel factor analytic tools preceded and facilitated new theoretical ideas such as the theory of multiple group factors of intelligence.
The article “Science Self-Concept – More Than the Sum of its Parts?” has now been published in “The Journal of Experimental Education” (btw in existence since 1932). The first 50 copies are free, in case you are interested. My first preprint. 😀Is a general science self-concept equivalent to an aggregated subject-specific science concept? It's about different modeling approaches, measurement invariance and concepts of equivalence. Check it out! Comment if you like: https://t.
I had the great chance to co-author two recent publications of Timo Gnambs, both dealing with the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES; Rosenberg, 1965). As a reminder, the RSES is a popular ten item self-report instrument measuring a respondent’s global self-worth and self-respect. But basically both papers are not about the RSES per se, rather they are applications of two recently introduced powerful and flexible extensions of the Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) Framework: Meta-Analytic Structural Equation Modeling (MASEM) and Local Weighted Structural Equation Modeling (LSEM), which will be described in more detail later on.
