with tolerance scores and variance inflation factors. Results Data were screened for outliers, and there were several participants with implicit evaluation scores >3 SD s from the mean ( n  = 3) or who were missing implicit evaluation data at baseline due to a large number of errors ( n  = 17). These

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

activity, as they are classic confounding variables as reported by Barbosa et al. ( 2015 ). Residual analysis, multicollinearity (variance inflation factor >5), tolerance, and Hosmer–Lemeshow tests were performed to confirm the quality of the associations. The significance level was set at p  ≤ .05. The

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

$ 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

. 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

against an inflation of type I error ( Kahan, Jairath, Doré, & Morris, 2014 ; Nicholas et al., 2015 ). The covariates, which were identical to those in Li et al.’s ( 2014 ) study, were selected because of their empirical connections with the outcomes (e.g., Bauman et al., 2012 ). An unadjusted analysis

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
