Measurement bias refers to systematic differences across subpopulations in the relation between observed test scores and the latent variant underlying the test scores. Comparisons of subpopulations with the same score on the latent variable can be expected to have the same observed test score. Measurement invariance is therefore one of the key issues in(More)
Investigating sources of within-and between-group differences and measurement invariance (MI) across groups is fundamental to any meaningful group comparison based on observed test scores. It is shown that by placing certain restrictions on the multigroup confirmatory factor model, it is possible to investigate the hypothesis that within-and between-group(More)
This abstract provides an outline of the research determining quantitative and qualitative differences in self-disclosure between subjects. The manifest variables used in the analyses were four variables measuring exposure towards different groups of people (employee, colleague, superior and customer), and extraversion, used as a collateral variable.(More)
The Leiden Index of Depression Sensitivity (LEIDS; Van der Does, 2002a) is a self-report measure of cognitive reactivity (CR) to sad mood. The LEIDS and its revised version, LEIDS-R (Van der Does & Williams, 2003), reliably distinguish between depression-vulnerable and healthy populations. They also correlate with other markers of depression vulnerability,(More)
