Psychometric properties of the Bangla version of the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K6)

differ in the probabilities of assenting to the Bangla K6 items and their categories. In absence of DIF (which was desirable), the probability of assenting to the Bangla K6 items and their categories would not differ across the student groups. Prior to computing test-retest reliability coefficients, Bland-Altman (BA) plot was used to assess and display agreement and systematic differences between the measurements at two time points. The BA plot examines heteroscedasticity between the measurements and identifies possible outliers. The 95% confidence interval (CI) of

The effects of Guarana (Paullinia cupana) supplementation on the cognitive performance of young healthy adults – a Systematic Review

effects of herbal extracts and can be used to both mentally impaired and healthy participants ( Kennedy, 2004 ). The tests included in the CDR battery system are immediate/ delayed word recall, word recognition, picture recognition, simple reaction time, digit vigilance, choice reaction time, numeric working memory and spatial working memory. The measurements of the single tests of the battery are combined into five cognitive outcome factors: ‘Speed of Attention’ factor, ‘Speed of Memory’ factor, ‘Accuracy of Attention’ factor, ‘Secondary Memory’ factor and ‘Working

Association of severity of depressive symptoms with sleep quality, social support and stress among Pakistani medical and dental students: A cross-sectional study

quality and high stress levels. Limitations This study has several limitations. Firstly, the use of convenient sampling and inclusion of only one medical school in the survey limits generalizability of these findings. The cross-sectional nature of this study limits inferences related to causality and temporality, and the use of self-administered questionnaires may introduce recall bias. Use of questionnaire can add recall bias in measurement of mental health indicators. Important variables such as use of pharmacological or psychological treatments among the

Eating disorders, risk and management: a personal journey and a South African and African perspective

of sustained recovery from anorexia nervosa, the trait of perfectionism remained. This suggested that perfectionism may well be a trait predisposing to development of the condition rather than a state mediated phenomenon. Szabo and Terre Blanche (1997) responded to the study with evidence supporting the finding from their own work involving measurement of “perfectionism” using the Eating Disorders Inventory. Szabo and Terre Blanche (1997) demonstrated that scores on this subscale of the self - report questionnaire remained stable despite recovery and discharge
