Meyer-Allen Instrument

Application: The Meyer-Allen Instrument

As an organizational consultant for Walden Sports, it may be your responsibility to decide on appropriate instruments to measure various organizational constructs. In this week’s Discussion, you used your observations to identify constructs of organizational commitment. Now, you want to learn how to build competencies. You need to objectively measure the organizational commitment construct to determine the actual levels of commitment inside the organization. One of the most popular instruments to measure organizational commitment was developed by Meyer and Allen (1991). They hold that organizational commitment is a multidimensional construct comprised of three components: affective, normative, and continuance commitment.

Your role in this Assignment is that of a behavioral scientist. You critically analyze the Meyer-Allen instrument and its purpose. As you start to work on this task, think about why you would use this measure and consider the reliability and validity evidence that exists for the instrument. Without good data, it can be difficult to make good recommendations to your client. Understanding the use and purpose of an instrument can increase the credibility of the findings.

For this Assignment, review this week’s Learning Resources on the Meyer-Allen instrument, considering the type of data you will need for your Final Project consulting report.

The Assignment (3 pages)Explain why the Meyer-Allen instrument is appropriate for measuring organizational commitment.Provide an example item from the Meyer-Allen instrument that you might include in your diagnostic survey and explain why.Describe the scale anchors used to score the instrument.Describe the psychometric properties (reliability and validity) of the instrument.

Discussion 250 words

 Describe the research question you are pursuing for your final project. When drawing a statistical conclusion, what would a potential Type I error be? A potential Type II error? Why is it important for researchers to understand these errors? 

This is the research you did 

 

Research question: “Does self-disclosure of the therapist improve eating disorder treatment.” 

Hypothesis: Self-disclosure of the therapist improves eating disorder treatment.

The key variables for this research are self-disclosure of the therapist and eating disorder treatment. This research will focus on online research whereby participants will be recruited from an eating disorder charity database. The participants will be asked about the status of their condition and how they feel about having the disorder. The neutral condition will be that the therapists will disclose their sexuality and their feelings towards the patients’ conditions and personality (Marziliano, Pessin, Rosenfeld, & Breitbart, 2018). 

When responding to your classmates, discuss the extent to which you agree with the Type I and Type II errors they identified, and also provide your perspective on why understanding these errors is important for researchers.

Discussion 1 Research Study Activity
 

In each of the following cases, identify which experimental design was used and why the researcher may have chosen that design. In order to compare the effectiveness of two different types of therapy for depression, depressed patients were assigned to receive either cognitive therapy or behavior therapy for a 12-week period. The researchers attempted to ensure that the patients in the two groups had a similar severity of depressed symptoms by administering a standardized test of depression to each participant, then pairing them according to the severity of their symptoms. To assess the difference in reading comprehension between 7 and 9-year-olds, a researcher recruited a group of each from a local primary school. They were given the same passage of text to read, and then asked a series of questions to assess their understanding.  To assess the effectiveness of two different ways of teaching reading, a group of 5-year-olds were recruited from a primary school. Their level of reading ability was assessed, and then they were taught using scheme one for 20 weeks. At the end of this period, their reading was reassessed, and a reading improvement score was calculated. They were then taught using scheme two for a further 20 weeks and another reading improvement score for this period was calculated. The reading improvement scores for each child were then compared. In order to assess the effect of organization on recall, a researcher randomly assigned student volunteers to two conditions. Condition one attempted to recall a list of words that were organized into meaningful categories; condition two attempted to recall the same words, randomly grouped on the page.

Discussion 2 Conducting Research Activity
 

Pick one research topic and answer the following questions.
Research Topic #1: The relationship between audience members’ opinions of a movie and their mood.

Research Topic #2: The relationship between the amount of time couples spend together and their relationship satisfaction.

Research Topic #3: The relationship between self-esteem and test performance.

Research Topic #4: The relationship between time spent listening to Heavy/Speed Metal music and aggression.

Directions: Design a correlational study to investigate the relationship between these two variables. What is your hypothesis? How will you operationally define and measure the two variables? How will you obtain a random sample of participants? Assume that your study produces a correlation of .56 between the two variables (between liking the movie and audience members’ happiness). What are at least three possible causal explanations for this relationship? Now design an experimental study to investigate these variables. What is your hypothesis? What type of hypotheses does the experimental method allow you to test that the correlational method does not? What is your independent variable? What is your dependent variable? How will you make sure that the study has high internal validity? Will you use random assignment to conditions? Do any ethical concerns about the treatment of participants emerge from your experimental design?

Discussion 3  Research Study Discussion

Much of today’s research in Psychology comes from colleges and universities. Research your college or a near-by state institution and identify one current study that is under way. Provide a brief overview of the research and whether or not the findings of that research would be of value to you someday.

Hearing loss is a natural occurrence

 

For this assignment, complete the following steps:

Step 1: Visit the TeenBuzz website at www.teenbuzz.org (opens in a new window). This site offers free ringtones that most adults cannot hear.  The website includes a chart of ringtones that start at 8kHz (everyone should be able to hear) and go up to 22kHz (only those below age 20 can hear).  Starting with the 8kHz frequency, download* each ringtone one at a time and keep a list of which you can hear and make a note when you are no longer able to hear the ringtone. 

*There are four options for downloading the ringtones, depending on what type of device you are using.  Most students on a computer, laptop or Android device will click the green download button (MP3). Students using iPhones will click the blue/grey button (M4R format) and students using Windows phones will click on the red/orange button (WAV format).  There is no need to save the ringtones.

Step 2:

Thoroughly discuss the following: Other than age, what factors may be both positively and negatively affecting your hearing?  For example, using headphones regularly or a history of ear infections may be negatively affecting your hearing while living in a rural area or rarely attending live concerts may have a positive affect on your hearing.  When writing your initial post, please include the frequencies you could hear and whether your actual age is consistent with the age ranges given by the website.

virtual

  Instructions

You are to gather and analyze conversations comparing virtual to face-to-face interactions. Begin by creating a brief 5 question opinion survey/interview on a topic of interest. This should include open-ended questions so that the people surveyed can elaborate on their answers.

Please be mindful of using open questions in your survey. These are questions that require an explanation / more than a few words. Here are some examples: What are some of the things you like about this class?  What are the challenges of going to school while working full time?  How is an online class different from a face-to-face class?  What types of activities do you enjoy in your class?  Describe the consequences of getting behind.  Avoid closed questions. These are questions that can be answered with a couple words and offer no explanation. Here are examples:  How many classes are you taking this semester? What classes are you taking this semester? When do you have class? Do you think you are going to pass? Did you turn in all your assignments? Are the tests hard? When is the semester over? Complete the survey/interview with 3 people face-to-face then complete the same survey/interview with 3 people using virtual communication such as email, text messaging, chat room, discussion board, or any other virtual means that you wish to use. To prepare your essay, think critically about your results.

Determine what your thesis is and state it clearly and concisely. It should briefly introduce your topic but more importantly should indicate how virtual interaction compares and contrasts with face-to-face interaction.This will be the first sentence of your essay.

In the body of your essay, you should include your survey-interview questions but it is not necessary to include your participants’ answers. Focus on the answers to these questions and compare and contrast the 2 sets of information. Were your results what you expected? How were they similar; how were they different? Was it easier to interact virtually or face-to-face? What were the challenges? What were the advantages of meeting face-to-face verses meeting virtually? What were the disadvantages of each way? How did the differences in the following seem to influence the nature of the responses: physical distance, anonymity, richness of communication, visual cues, time? You will want to be very thorough in the body as this is a very large percentage of your grade on the essay.

Your conclusion should summarize how virtual interaction with people compares and contrasts with face-to-face interaction reaffirming your thesis without restating it. This is where you conclude with an overall summary describing your insight into what the findings mean to you and what you learned about yourself in reference to your psychological well-being and the method of communication that proves more effective.
