Transcript: Siyuan Yin Article Review Presentation Personality, coping, and challenge and threat states in athletes Citation: Allen, M. S., Frings, D., & Hunter, S. (2012). Personality, coping, and challenge and threat states in athletes. International Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology, 10(4), 264–275. doi: 10.1080/1612197x.2012.682375 Introduction Introduction The relationships between challenge-threat, personality, and coping in sport. Focus Main Focus Explore associations between motivational states (challenge and threat) and sport-related coping. Objective 2 Objective 2 Explore associations between personality and coping, and potential mediating effects of personality on coping through motivational states. Objective 3 Objective 3 Explore associations between personality dimensions and motivational states of challenge and threat as indexed by hemodynamic parameters. Objective 1 Objective 1 Methods Participants Thirty-one currently competing athletes: 24 men & 7 women mean age 25 from a range of diverse sports average of 11.9 years experience \ Personality was assessed using the NEO-FFI extraversion, neuroticism, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness Coping behaviour was assessed using the Coping Function Questionnaire for sport avoidance coping, emotion-focused coping, and problem-focused coping Assessment Assessment Methodology Sport-speciﬁc speech - imagine and talk about an upcoming competition not possible to measure challenge and threat states directly during competition cardiovascular responses to physical exertion can mask the cardiovascular changes that differentiate challenge and threat Past research has shown that it is possible to induce challenge and threat cardiovascular responses, similar to those shown in current competitions, in laboratory settings using imagined goal-relevant situations Methodology Procedure - Obtain Baseline measurements Hemodynamic parameters ((heart rate, ventricular contractility, cardiac output [CO], and total peripheral resistance [TPR]) - 2 minutes speech: Sports realted or Control speech (events that had transpired that morning) With counterbalanced order across participants Procedure Results Descriptive statistics and reliability coefﬁcients Descriptive statistics Cardiovascular reactivity Challenge and threat Personality and coping Means and standard deviations for cardiovascular indexes (and reactivity) across conditions Table 2 Analysis - These changes are in line with predictions outlined in the biopsychosocial model suggest that participants were engaged in both speech tasks allowing for analyses of challenge and threat states. - Comparisons of reactivity scores show no signiﬁcant difference between sport and control reactivity for CO suggest that the two scenarios were eliciting the same cardiovascular response meaning the goal-relevant sport-speciﬁc speech was not effective in inducing challenge-threat responses above those of general speech Implication Correlations between raw cardiovascular data and personality and coping dimensions. Table 3 Medium to large negative effects were evident between CO and problem-focused coping, CO and emotion-focused coping , CO and extraversion, and CO and conscientiousness . Opposite positive correlations were shown between TPR and these four variables (albeit with smaller effects). HR also showed medium negative correlations with extraversion and conscientiousness Relationship between personality and coping Table 4 assessed by regressing personality dimensions on coping responses Analysis Problem-focused coping was signiﬁcantly associated with conscientiousness (β=.44, p<.05) and avoidance coping was signiﬁcantly associated with neuroticism (β=.38, p<.05), openness (β=−.36, p<.05), and agreeableness Conscientious athletes tend to cope with the demands of competition by directly tackling the problem whereas emotionally unstable athletes, athletes less open to new experiences, and athletes less concerned with cooperation and social harmony, tend to cope with competition demands by mentally or physically avoiding the stressor. Relationship between personality and coping A number of initial tests were performed to check on the homogeneity of the sample Descriptive statistics and reliability coefﬁcients Table 1 Analysis Scores on dependent variables were similar across ages and across different levels of experience and participation levels. A small but signiﬁcant sex difference was observed on personality dimensions (with women reporting higher levels of extraversion and neuroticism than men), F(5, 25)=2.68, p<.05, with no observable sex difference on coping dimensions. Analysis Analysis Analysis - Study Design - Sample Size and Inclusion Criterion - Practical Implications Study Design Study Design - not effective in generating a sport-specific challnege- threat response above that shown for general speech giving. - succesffuly design to create a challenge-threat response is needed for futher study Sample Sample - small

Transcript: BBA satisfaction -The Business School’s Center for Student Professional Development (CSPD) tracks job placement of its graduates. For 2017, CSPD reported that 54.6% of graduated seniors had jobs in their business-related careers. Background variables "Exploring common correlates of business undergraduate satisfaction with their degree program versus expected employment" gender, in-state resident, currently working and lived at least one semester on or near main campus. Scale ranging from 1 (strongly disagree) to 6 (strongly agree). Gary Blau, Wayne Williams, Sherry Jarrell & David Nash (2018) Exploring common correlates of business undergraduate satisfaction with their degree program versus expected employment, Journal of Education for Business, DOI: 10.1080/08832323.2018.1502144 -Prior work (Blau, G., Snell, C., Campbell, D.(2014) has found support for a professional development engagement (PDE) scale, where students were asked if different professional development activities offered by the business career services center contributed to their professional development. -When reviewing prior student-related outcomes research of Expected employment after graduation, studies have found that three general variable areas, background, curriculum-related, and professional development, are relevant. -Perceived course work challenge fits into this framework of expectations. Also had a positive correlation with satisfaction -59% of the current sample indicated they expected to have a full-time job by graduation, but a smaller percentage (51%) said this full-time job would be consistent with their major. -Deshields, Kara, and Kaynak (2005), found that college students’ perceived cognitive development, as part of their college experience, was positively related to their overall satisfaction. -A new three-item measure was used in this study. The three items were the following: “overall I am satisfied with the business core requirements,” “overall I am satisfied with my major,” and “overall I am satisfied with the BBA program. -BBA satisfaction included: academic attendance motivation advising ease and quality course work challenge professional development engagement two types of grading assessment learning perceptions (exam based and individual creative) Curriculum-related variables: -has found that prior internship experience was positively related to expected employment and employment success. Expected employment The strongest correlate was course work challenge, advising ease and quality Measurement Of Satisfaction This study, representing an exploratory effort to understand what explains such degree satisfaction, found a promising, reliable three-item measure. -Using a sample of United Kingdom college students, Douglas, and Barnes (2016) advising ease and quality, course work challenge, individual engagement, individual creative, exam-based and team based evaluation -Graduating students were also question as to whether or not they already have full time jobs prepared for them after school and also if it is consistent with the major professional development engagement and number of formal internships completed However, the number of formal internships completed was the most robust significant correlate across degree satisfaction and both types of expected employment, reinforcing the importance of students engaging in internship-related activities Thank you for listening! -Scale ranging from 1 (strongly disagree) to 6 (strongly agree). -Correlation between students satisfaction and future work life, sample size of 467 graduating business students (bachelor of business administration) - Authors: Gary Blau, Wayne Williams, Sherry Jarrell & David Nash Expected Employment Measurement Professional development variables: -Knowledgeable and approachable advising were found to be significant positive correlates of college student satisfaction -Examples of background variables include age, whether a student is currently working or not, if a student has lived on or near main campus etc. Student: Hassan Mohammad -attending workshops such as job search strategies and business etiquette, and employer mock interviews. -Prior empirical studies controlling for such variables have generally found them to be inconsistent or nonsignificant, for example, (Blau, G. (2016). "Correlates of student bachelor of business administration satisfaction and school reputation influencing perceived market value. Journal of Education for Business") did not find gender to be related to satisfaction.

Transcript: Issue Behaviorist v. Constructivist Interventions Behaviorist v. Constructivist Interventions Math Fluency: How Do We Get There? Applications for Educators An examination of the article "A Comparison of Behavioral and Constructivist Interventions for Increasing Math-Fact Fluency in a Second-Grade Classroom" researched by B. Poncy, E. McCallum, and A. Schmitt Research Background: Little research in math programs and interventions; primary focus has been on reading Math-fact fluency presumed a foundational skill in this study; starting point for math education research National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Mathematics Advisory Panel (NMAP) both recognize the significance of math-fact fluency Common Core State Standards address math fluency ex. 3rd grade - multiply and divide within a 100 and add and subtract within 1000 Legislative acts mandate research-based intervention programs for students with learning disabilities Issue Phonemic Awareness Reading Cognitive "Room" and Blending Fluency for Comprehension & Inferential Reasoning Basic Math Math-Fact Cognitive "Room" Facts Fluency for Solving Complex Problems and Reasoning Issue Fluency (fast and accurate recall of information): Term more often associated with the automaticity of reading, but parallel to math Overview of the Study Purpose: Is a behaviorist or constructivist based math intervention program more effective in increasing math-fact fluency? Participants: Second grade classroom of 19 students in rural setting Treatment: Alternate treatment design with both the implementation of behaviorist and constructivist based interventions Controls: Time of day assessment and treatment were administered Treatment and assessment math fact alignment Identical procedural steps for each respective treatment (given the circumstances and nature of each treatment - integrity checklist) Behaviorist v. Constructivist Interventions Constructivist Theory: Students observe and construct their own reasoning and understanding of the concept based on what is observed ex. inquiry, discovery and problem-based learning Teachers are guides; implicit instructors Math Connection Multiple strategies used to help students solve math problems, including student derived methods Independent real world problem solving Math-facts practiced through solving multi-step problems Constructivist Based Intervention Program in Study Facts That Last (FTL) Behaviorist v. Constructivist Interventions Behaviorist Theory: Students are given direct and explicit instruction on how to solve or understand a concept Repetition, immediate feedback from the teacher, and immediate response to the feedback from the student keystones of the theory Math Connection Intentional teaching on how to solve math problems Skills are built, increasing in complexity Math-fact automaticity Behaviorist Based Math Intervention Program in Study Cover, Copy, and Compare (CCC) Behaviorist v. Constructivist Interventions Facts That Last (FTL): Constructivist based intervention method Students learned math facts by breaking down and constructing an understanding of fact families and their relationships ex. 3+5=8, 5+3=8, 8-3=5, and 8-5=3 Teacher guided the students through a series of questions guiding students to think about the different fact families that can be made with a set of numbers Time varied due to student responses Because student engagement was not completely concrete due to the whole class oral questioning method, students were also given a worksheet to practice understanding of fact families Behaviorist v. Constructivist Interventions Cover, Copy, and Compare: Behaviorist based intervention method Students learned math facts through a timed task where students were to look at a math fact, cover the math fact, copy the math fact, and compare the math fact they wrote to the original Correct responses required students to go to the next fact Incorrect responses required students to write the correct fact and answer Task was completed on sheets containing math fact triangles Students had 6 minutes to cover, copy, and compare as many facts within the limited time Behaviorist v. Constructivist Interventions Experiment Introduction: Purpose - Is a behaviorist or constructivist based math intervention program more effective in increasing math-fact fluency? Participants - Second grade classroom (19 students) in a rural Midwest school Prior Student Knowledge - Subtraction math-facts were not directly taught or drilled, but used in completing multi-step math problems Independent Variable - Intervention treatments (CCC and FTL) Dependent Variable - Three-part assessment aligning specific math facts to the respective intervention or control problems Duration of Experiment - Baseline data, 6 school days Treatment implementation and data, 10 school days Maintenance data (1 day), collected 2 months after treatment Behaviorist v. Constructivist Interventions Experiment Design: Alternating treatments
