1. Loke, Wei Yang. An Examination of Construct Bias in the Narcissistic Personality Questionnaire for Children-Revised (NPQC-R) across Culture, Gender, and Age.

Degree: PhD, Psychology & Research in Education, 2015, University of Kansas

Construct bias in the Narcissistic Personality Questionnaire for Children – Revised (NPQC-R) was examined using the factor analytic and reliability methods among 701 Singapore and U.S. children and adolescents, ages 12 to 14 years. The NPQC-R is a 12-item measure that comprises of the Superiority and Exploitativeness subscales, and a Total scale. Results from the factor analytic method indicated that there was partial strong measurement invariance on the NPQC-R across culture (Singapore, U.S.) and gender (males, females), and strong measurement invariance on the NPQC-R across age (preadolescents, early adolescents). Also, a preponderance of evidence suggests that there is no construct bias across culture, gender, and age using the reliability methods based on an overlap in the 95% confidence interval of the internal consistency reliability estimates and tests of internal consistency reliability estimates using the Feldt technique between groups on the NPQC-R scale and subcale scores. Results from an examination of latent means indicated that U.S. students reported higher levels of Superiority compared to Singapore students, but no significant difference in the levels of Exploitativeness were found between groups. In addition, males and females had similar levels of Superiority, but males endorsed higher levels of Exploitativeness than females. Furthermore, preadolescents reported higher levels of Superiority compared to early adolescents, but no significant difference in the levels of Exploitativeness were found between the groups. Taken together, these results indicate no evidence of construct bias in the NPQC-R across culture, gender, and age. Limitations, future research directions, and practical implications of this study for practitioners (e.g., school psychologists) to become knowledgeable about the construct of narcissism, as measured by the NPQC-R is similar across culture, gender, and age, are discussed.

2. McGovern, Jamie. A CLOSER LOOK AT THE REVISED CHILDREN’S MANIFEST ANXIETY SCALE, SECOND EDITION (RCMAS-2) PERFORMANCE ANXIETY CLUSTER.

Degree: PhD, Psychology & Research in Education, 2016, University of Kansas

The present study explored the Revised Children’s Manifest Anxiety Scale-Second Edition (RCMAS-2) Performance Anxiety cluster for the possibility of construct bias across gender and age, latent mean differences across gender and age groups, internal consistency reliability for its scores with a U.S. sample, and convergent evidence of validity for its scores with a sample of 1,002 students, ages 7 to 19 years. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) results supported a one-factor structure for the Performance Anxiety cluster. The preponderance of the evidence from CFA and reliability methods suggested bias did not exist across gender and age groups. Latent means comparisons showed that females and older students reported higher levels of performance anxiety in comparison to males and younger students. In addition, the results indicated that the Performance Anxiety cluster’s scores have acceptable internal consistency reliability and that there is convergent evidence for the validity of the cluster’s scores. Limitations, future research directions, and practical implications of the study are discussed.

3. Manthey, Trevor Jay. A Pilot Study of MY VOICE: Strengths-Based and Self-Directed Recovery Planning.

Degree: PhD, Social Welfare, 2013, University of Kansas

An imbalance of power and autonomy exists between individuals with psychiatric disabilities and their treatment providers. Electronic decision support interventions (EDSI's) help individuals with psychiatric disabilities increase consumer self-determination and decision-making in care. The MY VOICE: Strengths-based and Self-Directed Recovery Planning is an EDSI designed to assist consumers in writing their own recovery plans. The purpose of this randomized waitlist controlled pilot study of the MY VOICE program was to test the hypothesis that participation in a self-directed EDSI program will lead to increases in consumer self-identified empowerment, self-determination and recovery. Findings indicate that participation in the MY VOICE program in comparison to the control group was a significant predictor of consumer self-identified recovery while participation in MY VOICE was not a significant predictor of self-identified empowerment or self-determination. The number of tasks a person completes and completion of the program itself were also not predictors of self-identified empowerment, self-determination, or recovery. Future research may need to control for the relationship with the peer-support worker facilitating the MY VOICE program, endeavor to the determine elements within the MY VOICE program that facilitate increases in self-identified recovery, and conduct qualitative analysis to better understand how participants are using their self-directed recovery plans and how they view the MY VOICE program and the peer support facilitator influencing them.
