1 - Co-Evolution of Substantive and Methodological Research: The Case of Grit, Self-Regulation, and Motivation

Mon, April 8, 8:00 to 10:00am, Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Floor: Mezzanine, Chestnut East

Session Type: Symposium


This symposium documents the benefits to substantive and quantitative methodological researchers when they work together on the same projects to answer research questions and generate new ones in each field. Presenters discuss how this approach to research can simultaneously inform understanding in each field. The substantive focus of this symposium is students’ grit, self-regulation, and motivation, psychological variables currently receiving much attention that predict educational outcomes. The quantitative methodological foci are dimension reduction techniques, including multidimensional item response theory (IRT) and spectral BiClustering. Presenters utilize these techniques to examine structural, content, and predictive validity of the focal constructs, and discuss how the analytic methods can be extended. The studies included come from the U. S., Korea, and Germany.
