A.

Discussion on List of Measures


Feedback

on prelim
inary draft of
Table of Measures we currently have from the Center
Proposal


Shawn: It’s organized at too high a level. Do we want to look at it in terms of behaviors?
Response categories may help us with this organization.

Julie: Change

the heading of tab
le from

Measures to Instruments
--

these are organized by name
of the instrument.


John: We want to be able to search on behavior.

Misty: Change format of document to follow website use.

Julie:

The intention of the table is just to inform team members at
this point what we have in
hand.
We p
ostponed

get
ting

these ideas
until

brainstorming the Web repository

(later on in this
meetings agenda)
.




Identifying unknown measures (see highlights in draft).

Shawn: Some
of the items of the Measure of Self Regulati
on
are a subset of OHT School
Climate.

The first page and items 16
-
19 look like OHT items. The

items on body image are

not a
part of the OHT survey.


To Do
: Julie will check to see if the measure came from Tom D.



The Social Support Scale for Children is
not part of PBS. Nobody else seemed to recognize it.

To Do
: Julie will check with Tony to see if he knows where it came from.



Jeff: Peer Experience Questionnaire pertains to Social Aggression and bullying. The originator is
Vern Burk
e (sp?) of

North Caro
lina.

To Do
: Jeff will get Julie this info.



Julie: Brian and Jeff may want to submit measures relevant to EA. We will discuss copyright
issues.

Shawn: Focus on measures used/familiar to the Center.

Decision
:
The team agreed that focusing on measures used

or familiar to the Center is a good
way to start.



B.

Brainstorm
ing about the Repository of Measures on the Web



Discuss examples of websites

Julie: NICHD Study of Early Childcare

Data collection and Timeline

Instrument Chart (instruments, phases, check ma
rks)

Instrument Documentation

Forms (only listed

ones that they could give out and did not inform where one could get
the copyrighted instruments
--

we would do more)

Manuals

John:
Suggested we look at Lew Goldberg’s Web site

Shawn:
Showed

an example
www.contextualpsychology.org
. Showed us how a user can add
information to the Web site. It has prompts of fields that need to be filled out.

Julie: Tony also suggested doing a site like Wikapedia, where anybo
dy can download to it.



Access

Who gets to download and upload?


Shawn: User types. For now, only have CEA Researchers have permission to upload/download.

Decision
:

General agreement from the group
-

Have all members upload information and then do
usabili
ty tests.



Content

What do we want on there?



Instrument Name

Manuals

Tech Reports/Psychometrics (unknown, in development, etc)

use the instrument)

e instrument itself

Citation of sources for items if the instrument draws from multiple sources (like OHT)

Constructs

Author

Reporter (respondent, 1..Many)

Assessment Modality

(e.g. observation, questionnaire, interview, etc.)

Behaviors (specific items)

Ke
ywords (for universal search)

Comments/Suggestions



Constructs

When is this needed in the Drupal development?

Jeff
: We should just list the constructs

that were depicted in the Center proposal

and
test

it in
-
house for a while.

Decision
:
The team agreed th
at this was a good way to start.



Access

At what point to we let the public access the measures?

To Do
: Will discuss at Center Meeting.



Copyright Issues

Jeff: There are
different
rules for internet vs. paper. The UO has information.

To Do
: Jeff will
gat
her up this information for us
.



Assistance from a Library Science Student

Misty: Suggested getting a student of Library Science (UW has distance learning students in
Eugene) to help with the Web Measures repository.

To Do
:
We w
ill discuss

this at the Adm
in Core Management Team meeting when

Tony returns.



Connecting to the Site

Once everyone has access via VPN, then all will get access to the
Center Web
site.

To do
: Julie will follow up to help get Brian and Tim access and will check whether Bernie has
ac
cess.



Maintenance

Not an issue

at this point. Will be more of an issue when

we give access

of the site

to the public.
When comments or suggestions come in it should be addressed by the appropriate people.


C.

Discussion of Training Priority Regarding Observ
ations



Training on Observations

A priority for training that came out of the Center retreat was training in observations. We need
to know more specifics about what people are

wanting to be trained in. W
hat questions should
we ask

folks at the quarterly m
eeting to further define their training needs pertaining to
observations
?

Jeff:
Create a menu of possibilities for people to choose from. For example issues of inter
-
rater
reliability and
construct validity

of direct observations could be on the menu.

Juli
e:
We may want to get clear about interest in content of what is being observed, for example
the interest might not be about behavioral observations
--

Bernie
is interested in observing and
coding expressed emotion.

Jeff:
Include data collection types:
vid
eo, real
-
time, pen/pencil technology

Julie:
Include how to create an observation system that matches your research questions


might
not need high levels of technology and analysis if interest is solely frequency counts.

John:
Include training issues, like

h
ow do yo
u keep on top of observer drift
, etc.

To do
:

Julie

will send out a start "menu" and

e
-
mail it to the team to
work o
n
.

Julie: W
e can decide on
length of training
time

needed once we get a better sense of what people
want
.
