Article
Full-text available
A model of violence (the Multidimensional Model of Violent Behavior; MMVB) was tested. 416 university students were surveyed to ascertain the difficulty they experience in coping with different forms of violence, violence forms they are prone to exhibit, and their levels of psychopathology. Factor analysis disclosed evidence of the MMVB " s constru...
Article
Obesity is the second largest cause of preventable death in the United States. Historically, obesity was considered a behavioral problem that could be simply addressed with behavioral modifications in diet and exercise. As scientific advancements have demonstrated in other neurological healthcare conditions such as alcoholism, there are important b...
Article
While there is a considerable body of literature correlating the role of dopaminergic genes and obesity, body mass index, body type, overeating, carbohydrate binging, energy expenditure and low dopamine D 2 receptor (D2R) density, there is a paucity of research concerning the dopamine D 2 receptor gene (DRD2) variants and percent body fat. We propo...
Article
Obesity is the second largest preventable cause of death in the United States. Even though it was classified as a disease in 1985, traditionally, obesity has been treated primarily as a behavioral problem that requires only modifications in diet and exercise. Similar to research on obesity, clinical studies have elucidated the role of biologic and...
Article
In a previous study, the H-Wave small-muscle fiber stimulator significantly reduced chronic pain and restored physical function among patients with pain in the lower and upper extremities and spine. In this extended population observational study, a cross-sectional,computer-administered 10-item survey was administered to 6774 patients (3367 men [49...
Article
Delayed P300 latency identifies dementia better than the Mini-Mental Status Exam and, in some cases, the Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS-III). The purpose of this study was to determine whether the outcome of an objective Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA) correlates with the findings of an electrophysiologic test-P300 latency-in patients 40 y of age...

The population-based incidence of rotavirus gastroenteritis in children <5 years of age in Valencia, Spain, over a 1-year period (December 1, 2003, to November 30, 2004) was determined.A total of 553 episodes of gastroenteritis in children <5 years of age (mean age, 22.8 +/- 14.5 months) were recorded (annual incidence of 138 per 1,000). A positive...
Article
The burden of chronic soft tissue inflammation and neuropathic pain on individuals and society is substantial. This study was conducted to evaluate the H-wave device--an innovative form of treatment for chronic pain and inflammation--in patients with persistent pain associated with injuries or conditions affecting the upper or lower extremities or...
Article
The community of learners (COL) concept stemmed from a reaction against what the editors of Learning Together: Children and Adults in a School Community (see record 2001-06242-000 ) describe as a restrictive educational tradition--a tradition noted for a number of practices (e.g., the arbitrary isolation of children in groups according to birth dat...
Article
Discusses recent theory and research on parental activities that influence children's academic self-regulatory development, describing a social-cognitive perspective on academic self- regulation which assumes parents function as implicit and explicit social models for their children and socially support their emulation and adaptive use of self-regu...
Article
One hundred adults were surveyed to test a self-regulation (SR) model of emotional intelligence (EI). The social cognitive SR concepts of motivation, goal setting, strategy usage, and self-evaluation were integrated with the EI components of the tendencies to be in touch with, sort out and regulate one's moods and emotions into a self-regulation mo...
Article
Four-hundred and fifteen 11th-grade parochial school students were surveyed to assess their mathematics self-efficacy (SE), ethnic identity, and career interests in mathematics and science. Path analysis disclosed a direct effect of gender on students' career interest (CI). In addition, CI was predicted by mathematics SE, and SE was, in turn, influ...
Article
Analysis of 30 elementary teachers' personal meaning of "intelligence" resulted in development of a three-component model: (1) acquisition performance (how much students learn), (2) retention performance (how much material students remember), and (3) utilization performance (how extensively students utilize learned material). Path analysis supporte...
Article
A rank-free method of calculating Kendall's τ is described. Derived from Daniels' 1944 general treatment of correlation, it is based on the signs of all possible paired comparisons in a data set. Unlike the 1975 alternative methods of Cooper and those of 1977 by Stuart, it allows for ties and thus yields the same coefficient as that of Kendall's or...
Article
Full-text available
One hundred and eight adults ranging in age between eighteen and sixty years were surveyed to assess their emotional intelligence (EI), goal orientation, life satisfaction, and depression symptomatology. Path analysis outcomes attested to the construct validity of EI. In addition, path analysis showed EI to be positively related with an adaptive fo...
Article
Full-text available
A model of parental inducement of academic self-regulation was tested. One hundred and five elementary-school students were surveyed to assess their perceptions of (a) their parents' influence on their academic self-regulation and (b) their own academic self-regulatory behavior. Their standardized academic achievement scores were also recorded. Fac...
Article
In this study, we sought preliminary information about the relationships among measures of self-efficacy, self-regulation, collaborative learning behavior, and grades. The collaborative verbal behavior of 20 students in a computer course was observed. Also, students responded to a questionnaire to assess their academic self-efficacy. A teacher rate...
Article
Full-text available
The causal role of students' self-efficacy beliefs and academic goals in self-motivated academic attainment was studied using path analysis procedures. Parental goal setting and students' self-efficacy and personal goals at the beginning of the semester served as predictors of students' final course grades in social studies. In addition, their grad...
Article
Full-text available
Forty-five boys and 45 girls of the 5th, 8th, and 11th grades from a school for the academically gifted and an identical number from regular schools were asked to describe their use of 14 self-regulated learning strategies and to estimate their verbal and mathematical efficacy. The groups of students from both schools included Whites, Blacks, Hispa...
Article
This study examines differences in the academic achievement of Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Central/South Americans, and the relationship of those differences to the time spent on homework, educational-occupational aspirations, and background. The following parental factors are examined: (1) the press for English; (2) the press for independence; (3)...
Article
One hundred elementary school teachers were surveyed to assess: their perceptions of the prevalence of intrinsically- and extrinsically-oriented work incentives in their schools; their perceptions of the prevalence of aversive work conditions in their schools; and their commitment to teaching. Analysis of the data revealed that: (1) the perception...
Article
Full-text available
Using student interviews, teacher ratings, and achievement test outcomes, we validated a strategy model of student self-regulated learning as a theoretical construct. Forty-four male and 36 female high school students were asked to describe their use of 14 self-regulated learning strategies in six contexts, and their teachers rated these students f...
Article

Forty male and female l0th-grade students from a high achievement track and 40 from other (lower) achievement tracks of a suburban high school were interviewed concerning their use of self-regulated learning strategies during class, homework, and study. Fourteen categories of self-regulation strategies were identified from student answers that deal...
