inevitably leads to a discussion of grade inflation and the suggestion that those with poor student evaluations are the only faculty who have stood firm and held the line on demanding high achievement. In the end, these faculty not only ignore student evaluations and avoid growth as teachers but often take

formidable. We used nonparametric, Wilcoxon signed-rank tests for comparison of the structured interview and computerized self-report symptoms due to the skewed nature of the symptom endorsement and did not employ special tests that involve zero inflation. Results Participants reported significantly more

seems to be associated with increased pain, suggesting that, in some studies, individuals were possibly unable to distinguish between pain at the muscular level and the discomfort prompted by the cuff pressure. In fact, the compressing force exerted by the cuff inflation may increase the discomfort

. Tourniquets were placed directly inferior to the gluteal fold and were fastened tightly around the thigh using Velcro straps. Inflation was controlled by a personalized tourniquet system (PTSii; Delfi Medical Innovations Inc, Vancouver, Canada) set to the individualized lowest effective limb occlusion

they currently consider themselves to be well informed about fitness and physical activity. Cumulative Results One limitation of research with multiple dependent variables is the risk of alpha inflation. In PAT1, for example, 28 comparisons were made between CPE and TPE groups. Of the total 28

net force–time curve to prevent inflation of the associations between PF and the time-specific variables, which would occur if gross force was used. Net PF was reported as the maximum force across the recorded net force–time curve. Subsequently, net force at 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 milliseconds was

is similar to IPC in that it uses air to provide compression, but differs because it utilizes multiple chambers, pressure gradients, and patterned inflation to create massage-like patterns that are applied to patients. 12 This specific pattern was created to mimic the body’s natural circulation and

$ considering the inflation of the period (2010–2014) to ensure comparability. Metabolic Syndrome The presence of MetS was assessed at baseline (2010), 2 (2012), and 4 (2014) years later. MetS was defined according to the criteria established by the NCEP-ATP III (3 or more of the following 5 risk factors): high

test and test position, as well as the interaction of the 2 terms (full factorial), were entered as factors. Post hoc pairwise comparisons with Bonferroni correction were used to control Type I error inflation due to multiplicity. The criterion for tests of statistical significance was set at P  < .05
