does someone know until when they will upload the official results??
why do they take soooo much time?? so annoying!
We're allowed to make 12 mistakes on a 40Q exam, right? :D Just to be completely sure :P
do you mean unidimensionaility? If not, can anyone please explain?
Unidimensionality and multidimensionality seem to have been mixed up at the precision of alpha part I think
According to Lillienfeld:DAP is a construction method ;)
The sources we have been provided with are indeed ambiguous regarding that! Lilienfeld categorizes DAP as a "construction technique" , while in Gregory they list it among "expression techniques" instead of "construction techniques"
Thank you so Much for these questions. Currently I do not have access to the Gregory Book, but I think I remembered that it stated that the exact formula for T can differ. Just keep in mind that the mean is preferably 5 times as high as the SD (to keep avoiding negative numbers). So does not have to be T=10Z+50 persé... One can also standardize it to T=20Z+100 for example (I do agree that 10Z+50 is most commonly used)
T is specifically 10z + 50; however other standardised methods use different SD and mean :) Regarding the rule, this is indeed the mean that should be at least 5 times bigger than the SD :)
Could someone please help me with the distinction between qualified individualism and unqualified individualism (task 5)? :)

That is confusing, which one of them is it now?
So according to what I found on the discussion board both Gregory and Kaplan are in line with what Anonymous Pineapple stated: - Qualified Individualism: DISREGARDS gender, race, etc. in practice (I think the ambiguity stems from Kaplan stating that the Qualified Individualists still note that gender, race, etc. could be good predictors but do not include them nevertheless), so it is focused solely on the quality of individuals I suppose - Unqualified Individualism: INCLUDES gender, race, etc. in practice

This is awesome, thank you! I'm not sure if I'm correct, but I think that in question 12 both A and C are correct. I thought that Thurstone method was the same as the method of equal-appearing intervals? Correct me if I'm wrong
Gregory page 139 states that Thurstone proposed/constructed the method of equal-appearing intervals; I'd say you're correct .
I agree, both A and C indicate the same answer option, the Thurstone method equals the method of equal-appearing intervals. And thank you to the person that generated these MC questions, great work!

I dont understand why you say that lower prescision=lower alpha and this is good But than you state that if a test has high alpha, a large portion of the variance in the test is attributable to group factors, so alpha should lay above 0.7 Im confused, sorry. It would be lovely if you could explain :)

Our tutor told us to focus on the following things: For the ethics: confidentiality and data provision, file and reporting, getting big picture out of it and then smth about the empirical cycle & diagnostic cycle and how to distinguish those (- Diagnostic Cycle: recognize which one  Empirical vs. regulative Goal & reasoning behind it (steps)) so yeah haha I dont really know but thank you!
i think a low precision in numerical terms can be translated into 1 (or something close to that). high precision (unidimensionality) means a value close to 0.
Can someone explain: what is the likelhood ratio in task 9 and what exactly is the difference between the likelihood ratio and the positive predictive value (PPV)? Thanks you!

These overviews are amazing! Thanks so much! I got a quesion about the inductive strategies. Because I thought that Internal was inductive and external was deductive? Or am I wrong, would love if someone could clarify :)

sorry my bad, of course I meant deductive
you're welcome good luck for revising ! :D

Thank you! Just keep in mind that the biases from De Vrier article are apparently super important, as well as their remedies! :)
Thanks for the info !

Do you also have overviews for the other tasks? They are so helpful, thank you!
yeah sure just finished them today i'll post them now ;)

I think in 4. Testing the items 0,3 is difficult and 0,7 is easy :) as P equals the proportion of how many people got it correct, thus the higher p, the more people got it correct and therefore the easier it was :) THANKS for all your hard work :)

Hey Leonie, first thank you for all your hard work and amazing summaries in the last 3 years!! Is there any chance that you will still upload the missing summaries (5, 7, 8)?:) even if they are not complete..I just love your structure! Thanks again :)
dear mathilde, i think u referred here to figure 19.8 instead of 19.9. Correct me if im wrong. Best wishes
ooooh sorry you're right ! thanks !
Hi everyone, does someone have the following two articles for task 8 and could maybe upload them? Dutch Association of Psychologists (NIP) (2017). Guidelines for the use of tests 2017 Van Strien, P.J. (1997). Towards a methodology of psychological practice. The regulative cycle. I've tried to get the articles in multiple ways , but I cannot seem to get access to it. Thank you in advance!
You can find the guidlelines on the webpage of NIP! I will upload the van strien.
Ah, I see it now. Thanks a lot! :)

what are you providing "no guarantee" for? Are you not convinced that your summaries are good? If yes, why are you uploading them? I'm really curious

And good luck with Psychodiagnostics guys!
oh I totally get that. Really nice that you are still uploading then. I know from 1 person who stopped uploading due to the pressure. So thank you very much for the summaries :)
have your tutors mentioned whether all the Freud stuff + personality theories are important in task 7?
It is not important apparently :)

NICEEE DUDE
it says two contradicting things regarding the incremental validity for statistical prediction studies here, do you know which one is true?
I made a mistake here: countries with greater power distance between home and host country are most negatively affected as written in column 2 of this row.

Thanks for uploading!! Could you upload the following tasks maybe as well? That would be great :))

I have a minor question, and was hoping that you guys could help me.. I'm struggling a bit with all the kinds of validity, and I was wondering if it's true that Criterion and Content both are closely related to Construct? Meaning that 'Construct Validity' can be seen as a sort umbrella of validity..
I've found this somewhere: In psychometric theories, construct validity is usually seen as unifying concept for all types of validity evidence --> individual studies of 3 validity types are regarded merely as supportive evidence for construct validation. Don't know if that helps? Other than this I'm also quite lost
Yes! Thank you, just needed the confirmation. I found in Messick (literature task 2) that he was the one proposing this unified concept of construct-validity. But I also find that it was a very hard paper to read, therefore that I seeked your confirmation :)
Hiii btw all the definitions documents I'm posting are from Psychodiagnostics >>> A <<<.

Oh, now I'm not sure anymoree.. Maybe I'm using old summaries or something, but I've had to choose between the two and also every mail I get has 2017-600-IPN3109A in the subject, so I figured there's still a division.
Yeah no, I think I have an old summary , sorry
Does anyone have the Gregory-book online/in PDF?
Hiiii, anyone else failed Psychodiagnostics wants to study together?
Check!
Do you guys know which is the max number of errors you can have @ the exam?

That means that you have to have a percentage of 70% correct.. I cannot imagine that that is the national way to go and rate an exam...
I think it’s always been this way

thanks for uploading! I found 2 minor things that might be important for examination: hunter & schmidt's ethical positions are not about test use per se, but about institutions selecting people based on test scores. Second, the chapter does not state that quotas are unfair, but that not using quotas would be considered unfair.
does someone know how important the lectures are?

never looked at any lecture ever during study. Still passed so in my opinion, not important
Except for the Lecture on Methods for test design. This one is important!
Hey! Did anyone take notes on the lecture for topic 3 and could upload them please? :)
Could somebody maybe upload the applications to the task ? So, the answers to the practical examples in the course manual? We unfortunately never talked about this in my tutorial!

Thank you for your great summaries! Could you maybe also upload your summary of task 6?
Anybody selling a summary for psychodiagnostic ?
Also would be interested​

Are the three types of change not a part of the time type?

thanks for uploading! Could you upload it as a word file as well? it is pretty annoying to copy/paste it into word and change the whole layout. I would like to add / shorten some things for my own use.

I uploaed it as pdf because in word it would mess up the formulas etc. But I can do that if you wish :D
Thanks for already uploading task 2 as a word file. If it doesn't bother you much, that would be great! :)
