    ABSTRACT: This article investigates if online evaluation leads to different results than paper-and-pencil evaluation. Given that most previous studies confound the evaluation mode (online versus paper) with the evaluation situation (in class versus after class), we expected that evaluation results would be influenced only by the evaluation situation, whereas the very evaluation mode would not be relevant for the evaluation results. Analysing evaluations of a training programme for university teachers, we compared paper evaluations after class to either paper evaluations in class or online evaluations after class. The response rates were higher for the in-class compared to the after-class evaluations. Likewise, the scale ratings showed that paper evaluations after class were more negative than paper evaluations in class. In addition, participants wrote longer negative comments, but not positive comments, when evaluating after class compared to in class, independent of evaluation mode. The data support the hypothesis that only the evaluation situation, but not the evaluation mode, influences evaluation results.

    ABSTRACT: Using a Web-based survey, the authors tested M. Jahoda's (1981, 1982, 1997) latent deprivation model among employed, unemployed, and out-of-the-labor-force (OLF) people. The model predicted that employment is the main provider of 5 specific subconstructs of experience important to mental health: time structure, social contact, collective purpose, status, and activity. As expected, deprivation of these latent functions correlated with distress not only among employed and unemployed people, but also among OLF people. OLF people reported significantly more latent deprivation than did employed people, but they reported significantly less latent deprivation than did unemployed people. Furthermore, latent deprivation mediated the negative effects of unemployment and OLF status on mental health. When the authors statistically controlled the influence of manifest deprivation, the effect of latent deprivation on mental health remained stable.
