Limitations, Major Findings, and Implications

01 Oct 2020-pp 185-195
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors discuss the implications of these findings for parenting, teaching, and the conduct of program evaluation research in education and developmental psychology, including associations between temperament profiles and academic achievement, behavior problems, prosocial behavior, social status, compliance, and likeability.
Abstract: All research endeavors have limitations. Some of the limitations of this project include error built in to models in an effort to make child behavior more comprehensible, limitations based on what is measured, and limitations of the statistical method used. A particular limitation of the current study was the lack of longitudinal data so that the stability of the seven-profile model across developmental ages remains unknown. This chapter also reviews eight of the most important findings from the research, including associations between temperament profiles and academic achievement, behavior problems, prosocial behavior, social status, compliance, and likeability. This chapter concludes with discussing the implications of these findings for parenting, teaching, and the conduct of program evaluation research in education and developmental psychology.

TL;DR: In this article , the authors examined how the future of the chef's profession is perceived, how future generations of chefs could be developed, and the main emerging trends within the chefs' scene.
Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this study is to shed new light on empirical and conceptual aspects related to chefs’ careers and the hospitality sector. The study examines how the future of the chef’s profession is perceived, how future generations of chefs could be developed and the main emerging trends within the chef’s scene. Design/methodology/approach Semi-structured, face-to-face, online and telephone interviews were conducted with 34 chefs operating in Australia and 35 in Vietnam. Findings The findings reveal ten dimensions that strongly adhere to knowledge management (KM) and the notions of the knowledge-based view of the firm. In addition, numerous differences in how the two groups perceived aspects of their careers transpire. Based on these findings, a conceptual framework was developed, with important theoretical and practical implications. Practical implications The importance of KM through talent development, mentoring, creating a learning environment and enhancing problem-solving skills is highlighted. Originality/value While scholarly works emphasise chefs’ value, importance and contributions, little is known about the links between their careers and KM. Furthermore, almost no study has compared chefs across geographic/cultural domains. The study addresses these research gaps and contributes to the conceptual understanding of KM within the chefs’ domain.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors examined parent-teacher agreement (correlations) and discrepancies (t tests) on preschoolers' social skills and problem behaviors for the normative Portuguese sample (N = 1,000) of the Preschool and Kindergarten Behavior Scales 2nd Edition (PKBS-2).
Abstract: The parent-teacher agreement has become an important issue of children's psychological assessment. However, the amount of research available for preschool children is small and mainly based on one index of agreement with samples of modest size/representativeness. This study examined parent-teacher agreement (correlations) and discrepancies (t tests) on preschoolers' social skills and problem behaviors for the normative Portuguese sample (N = 1,000) of the Preschool and Kindergarten Behavior Scales – 2nd Edition (PKBS-2). Analyses were replicated according to the child's gender and mothers' educational level. Correlational analyses suggest weak to moderate informant agreement (mean correlation = .32). Parents' and teachers' ratings are significantly different for all PKBS-2 scores, with parents assigning higher scores both on social skills and problem behaviors. Results highlight the importance of both parents' and teachers' perspectives to achieve a more comprehensive picture of preschoolers' social-emotional behaviors, and reinforce the evidence of reliability of the PKBS-2 Portuguese version.

TL;DR: The analyses revealed that the pattern of relations between social sensitivity and indexes of adjustment differed in the two countries, and suggested that children's social sensitivity may have different functional meanings in Chinese and North American societies.
Abstract: This study examined relations of social sensitivity to socioemotional and school adjustment in Chinese and Canadian children. Participants were fourth- to eighth-grade students (Mage = 12 years) in China (n = 723) and Canada (n = 568). Data were obtained from multiple sources. The analyses revealed that the pattern of relations between social sensitivity and indexes of adjustment differed in the two countries. Social sensitivity was negatively associated with social and school adjustment and positively associated with psychological distress in Canadian children. However, social sensitivity was positively associated with school competence and psychological well-being in Chinese children. The results indicate that children's social sensitivity may have different functional meanings in Chinese and North American societies.
