    Sammanfattning : There has been a recent surge in interest in waterborne public transportation (WPT). Publictransport providers (PTP) are seeing its potential in complementing the existing transportnetwork and alleviating urban traffic congestion and pollution. But the adoption of WPTtoday is challenging due to a series of technical and implementation challenges. LÄS MER

  2. 2. On Rank-invariant Methods for Ordinal Data

    Författare :Yishen Yang; Sune Karlsson; Elisabeth Svensson; Rolf Larsson; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ordinal data; rank-invariance; systematic change; agreement; association; inter-rater reliability; ranking; Spearman; multi-item scale; Statistics; Statistik;

    Sammanfattning : Data from rating scale assessments have rank-invariant properties only, which means that the data represent an ordering, but lack of standardized magnitude, inter-categorical distances, and linearity. Even though the judgments often are coded by natural numbers they are not really metric. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Composite Likelihood Estimation for Latent Variable Models with Ordinal and Continuous, or Ranking Variables

    Författare :Myrsini Katsikatsou; Fan Yang-Wallentin; Irini Moustaki; Karl Gustav Jöreskog; Ruggero Bellio; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; latent variable models; factor analysis; structural equation models; Thurstonian model; item response theory; composite likelihood estimation; pairwise likelihood estimation; maximum likelihood; weighted least squares; ordinal variables; ranking variables; lavaan; Statistics; Statistik;

    Sammanfattning : The estimation of latent variable models with ordinal and continuous, or ranking variables is the research focus of this thesis. The existing estimation methods are discussed and a composite likelihood approach is developed. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Selection of stimuli for listening tests by software-assisted ranking

    Författare :Jonas Ekeroot; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Ljudteknik; Audio Technology;

    Sammanfattning : Within the academic field of audio technology, which is the context of this thesis, research questions related to various forms of perceptual audio evaluation of different types of audio systems are important and commonly encountered. Methods for systematic evaluations of listeners’ perceived audio quality, based on different experimental designs, have evolved over a time span of several decades and are collectively referred to as listening tests.

  5. 5. Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy : Three Methods Describing a Transactional Analysis Group Therapy

    Författare :Roland Johnsson; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; transactional analysis psychotherapy; TA; diagnosis; psychotherapy method; alliance;

    Sammanfattning : Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy - Three Methods Describing a Transactional Analysis Group Therapy The overall aim of the present thesis was to enhance and revive the practical understanding of the active ingredients in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (TA) and to define and lay down elements of TA, which makes it a distinct and replicable method of treatment. The thesis includes three empirical studies of a videotaped one-year long TA Group Therapy with 10 clients. LÄS MER
