As applied to HRI, a general measure of social responses to robots should identify and capture what people spontaneously focus on when they think about, look at, or interact with a robot. Figure 2. 0000004403 00000 n Ideally, amount of SNS use should not be assessed with self-report measures, particularly if asking about a respondent's average time spent on SNS because recall bias is likely to confound the findings (Junco, 2013; see Section 1.2 for details). The lens model, backed by probabilistic functionalism and representative design, has been at the center of an entire research tradition on clinical inference (see Hammond 1980, 1996). Unlike questionnaires designed to elicit information about a user’s state (e.g., satisfaction or other sentiment) as a consequence of interacting with a website, the goal of the GAIS was “to explore the underlying components of the attitudes of individuals to the Internet, and to measure individuals on those attitude components” (Joyce and Kirakowski, 2015, p. 506). Theory and practice are also well developed for generalizing from a measure to an abstract construct or from an experimental treatment to a more general causal agent. We use them because there is a high degree of isomorphism between the tools and the universe from which the data were generated. The methodology of representative design, as we have seen, rejected the classical experiment on grounds that it is unrepresentative of the usual ecology of in which knowers function. The multiplication rule, rm, is used to calculate the number of possible ordered configurations of r categories, given m conditions. In turn, the left side of the model focuses on predictions of that same distal variable derived from a multiple regression analysis in which the same cues (although here they are ‘indicators’ or ‘variables’) are predictors. This work has been criticized for using video clips rather than actual robots (Weiss & Bartneck, 2015). 0000000016 00000 n In short, despite these limitations, empirical keying of SJTs seems to be more effective than either subject matter/expert-opinion-based scoring methods or rational approaches. In its strong form, the principle states that expectancies and values are combined multiplicatively, or at least that people behave as if they combine their cognitions in this way. If the squared correlation between any two constructs is lower than PVC for a construct, then there is evidence of discriminant validity. At the sub-scale level, measures of CR higher than 0.70 were considered to be a basic requirement for reliability. 2000) according to which knowers adapt to real-world environments by using overlapping and mutually substitutable informational sources to test and improve their knowledge of indirectly observable (distal) objects and behaviors. A significant positive association with any of these indicators would support the criterion validity of an SNS engagement scale. 1987). 0000292116 00000 n The items measuring each concept are clear. The WEBQUAL questionnaire was developed by Loiacono et al. For example, a study using video as a medium of administration for situational judgment tests (SJTs) showed that video-based SJT scores did not correlate with either cognitive ability or personality measures, but the same scenarios were highly correlated with cognitive ability when presented using a paper-and-pencil format. A third development is multiple triangulation, including critical multiplism (Cook 1984), which involves the inclusion of multiple theories, methods, measures, observers, observations, and values. 0000006004 00000 n 0000003331 00000 n That is, discriminant validity is indicated if the variance shared between any two different constructs is less than variance shared between a construct and its measures (Fornell and Zinkhan 1984). Generally, a measure is psychometrically sound to the degree that it is both reliable and valid. The overall coefficient alpha (based on items 1–12) was 0.89. If an SNS engagement scale had an association with amount of SNS use exceeding Brown's cutoff, this would indicate a lack of discriminant validity. For example, Surprised–Quiescent judgments were loosely related to the perceived safety factor that it supposedly measured. In the behavioral and social sciences at the beginning of the twenty-first century, theory and practice are most developed when individuals or households are sampled to describe a human population. 0000292041 00000 n Psychometrics provides researchers with a set of standards by which to judge the effectiveness and likely success of measuring psychological phenomena. However, the purposive selection and theory-linked methods needed for construct validation are not as formally well supported as random selection is. This criticism is unfounded: social cognition models summarize dynamic causal processes. Usually, each SJT scenario has several response options (actions) that are derived from interviews with subject matter experts. Convergent and discriminant validity of dimensions. DOI: 10.1016/S0010-8804(03)90254-0 Corpus ID: 155002471. (2009) except for perceived safety (Cronbach's α = 0.60). To test the criterion validity of an SNS engagement scale, researchers should show that it is related to variables that are outcomes of SNS engagement. With the TRA, for example, once the behavior of interest has been defined, it is possible to generate questionnaire items for intention and for the direct measures of attitude and subjective norm. Compared with the other models, research on the TRA and the TPB shows a relatively high degree of standardization of measures based on published recommendations (Ajzen and Fishbein 1980). From an initial pool of 132 items, the final questionnaire contained 15 items identified as important characteristics of excellent websites (see their Table 3, Lascu and Clow, 2008, p. 373). A number of important methodologies were developed on the basis of this recognition. There are several distinct benefits to using psychometrically valid measures in HRI. Although these components can be extended to nonhealth-related events, for example the risk of financial loss, the scope of both models is necessarily limited by the nature of these two constructs. People may not be aware of all the options available to them and of all the consequences that may follow from their actions. However, various deliberate sampling and replication strategies are relevant here, including meta-analysis. Article Google Scholar Cronbach, L. (1951). Others, such as paper-and-pencil situational judgment tests (e.g., respondents are given written scenarios and asked how they would react in that situation) do not correlate with personality measures, but, instead, correlate highly with cognitive ability scores. For example, using the traditional formula described by Fan (2003), when both scales have an average reliability of alpha = .80, Brown's cutoff for discriminant validity would be set at r = .51. Test developers should examine the psychometric properties of the new item types: item-total correlations, reliability, dimensionality, convergent and, Quantifying the User Experience (Second Edition), to capture key characteristics of Web quality from a user perspective. Table 3.5 Correlations Among Adult -Rated Process and Outcome Total Scores. 0000003711 00000 n Stated differently, SET, and the TRA and the TPB, regard health behaviors as having the same proximal determinants as other kinds of behavior. Moreover, responses to many of the items that were intended to measure specific concepts were only weakly related to that factor. Factor analysis provided evidence for four subscales: Internet Affect (nine items, reliability of 0.87), Internet Exhilaration (three items, reliability of 0.76), Social Benefit of the Internet (six items, reliability of 0.79), and Internet Detriment (three items, reliability of 0.67). Other constructs appear to be very similar, for example, perceived behavioral control and self-efficacy. Rules of Thumb for Evaluating Reflective Measurement Model •Convergent validity -AVE > 0.50 •Discriminant validity Fornell-Larcker (1981) criterion – the square root of the AVE > the highest correlation with any other construct . 0000009090 00000 n Since the beginning of the 21st century, there have been a number of other publications of questionnaires designed for the assessment of websites.

SNS addiction has also been frequently used to test convergent validity of SNS engagement scales (e.g., Li et al., 2016; Olufadi, 2016). The recognition that nature is not directly observable—that our predicament as knowers is that we must employ many intercorrelated and mutually substitutable proximal cues to infer the properties and behavior of distal objects—means that science and other forms of ‘distal knowing’ involve a process of pattern matching through triangulation (Campbell 1966). In a study on the uncanny valley, Ho and MacDorman (2010) had participants rate computer animated characters and robots displayed via video clips using the Godspeed Questionnaire. More research is needed to explore alternative scoring procedures, medium of administration effects, and incremental validity in job selection. Convergent and Discriminant validity . 0000291514 00000 n The p value gives the probability of obtaining a X 2 value larger than that actually obtained, given that the hypothesized model holds. Perhaps the answers here lie in perceptual or cognitive psychology information-processing models. SNS engagement scales would have criterion validity if they had significant positive correlations with bridging social capital, bonding social capital, or both. As we argued earlier in this chapter, social reactions to robots are central in accounting for various important aspects of HRI. Moreover, these intermeasure correlations are stronger than the correlations of these measures with measures designed to assess the other dimension. Instruments should have high discriminant validity if they presume to evaluate more than one aspect of judgment. The lens model has a computerized decision support program (‘Policy PC’) and its theoretical foundation has been redefined from social judgment theory to cognitive continuum theory (Hammond 1996). Elizabeth E. Grandón, J. Michael Pearson, in Value Creation from E-Business Models, 2004. Construct Validity: Convergent and Discriminant Validity Standardized loading estimates should be .5 or higher, and ideally .7 or higher. The questionnaire broadly covers Usefulness, Ease-of-Use, Entertainment, and Complimentary Relationship. S. Sutton, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, 2001. Theory and practice are also well developed for generalizing from a measure to an abstract construct or from an experimental treatment to a more general causal agent. 0000001116 00000 n The preferred level of correlation is the Rule of Thumb. To assess the validity of the Convergent, the Smart-PLS program will be used by looking at the factor loading value. When different concepts are being measured within a single scale, the scale's dimensionality, or factor structure, is used to identify the number and nature of distinct constructs being assessed. 0000005001 00000 n Exams will emphasize the assessment of skills—such as a physician's patient management skills—in addition to measuring the breadth and depth of knowledge. Richard A.
