Psychological Test and Assessment Modeling 3-2014

Risto Hotulainen and colleagues (Helsinki University) examined how attention measured in prolonged over-learned response tasks predicts scientific reasoning and school performance and if high levels of attention have a significant relationship with high level scientific reasoning and school performance.

"Modeling showed that the most powerful single predictor of school performance was scientific reasoning. In general, in the comprehensive model, attention added little to the predictive validity indicated by scientific reasoning. The effect of attention was mainly indirect, scientific reasoning being the mediator. However, results showed that students who belonged to the high attention group possessed higher scientific reasoning scores and school grades when compared to their counterparts possessing lower attention levels. In other words, exceptional high level attention measured in simple prolonged working task seems to facilitate attainment of high-level scientific reasoning and school achievement."

Directed deceased donation: beyond the impartial allocation system
"Within a pluralistic account of morality, partial values have a merit of their own and should be assessed in their own terms. These values are extremely relevant in the field of organ transplantation, but are misunderstood at a political level where partiality is put at par with injustice, and where fairness is exclusively taken as impartial justice." Dr. Medard Hilhorst (Erasmus Medical University Rotterdam) argues "that partial values are fundamental
