Judgment research at Vanderbilt

Steve Schilling and I are putting the finishing touches on "Modeling Diversity in Judgment: Hierarchical Linear Models as a Bridge Between Generalizability Theory and the Lens Model Equation" (promised in the Fall 1997 issue of The Brunswik Society Newsletter). Those interested in receiving a copy should alert me at the email address given at the end of this note. Steve and I are also working on a chapter (for The Essential Brunswik) that will focus on the use of hierarchical linear models for the nomothetic aggregation of idiographic descriptions of judgment.

I am also preparing (with Jacqueline Palka) to collect data in a study of judgments of the professional competence of student teachers by university faculty, supervising teachers, and student teachers themselves. Specifically, we plan to examine (a) the relationship between self-insight and professional competence (as judged by supervising teachers) and (b) the relationship between other-insight and professional competence. We predict that students with high other-insight will receive higher ratings than students with low other-insight and that students with high self-insight will receive higher ratings than students with low self-insight. Also, we expect that the relationship between other-insight and professional competence ratings will be stronger than the relationship between self-insight and professional competence ratings.

Finally, I am preparing two additional chapters for The Essential Brunswik: (1) a description of the application of the lens model to the assessment of professional competence and (2) the use of generalizability theory to assess the reliability of expert judgment.
