Assessing impulsive-analytic disposition: the likelihood-to-act survey and other instruments. (English)
Tso, Tai-Yih (ed.), Proceedings of the 36th conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education “Opportunities to learn in mathematics education", PME 36, Taipei, Taiwan, July 18‒22, 2012, Vol. 3. Taipei: National Taiwan Normal University. 131-138 (2012).
Summary: The likelihood-to-act (LtA) survey is a 32-item instrument that measures impulsive and analytic dispositions in solving math problems. In this research report we compare it to other instruments related to the impulsive-analytic construct such as Frederick’s Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT) and the Barratt impulsive scale in terms of mean scores, Cronbach alpha values, and correlation values. Both LtA-impulsive and LtA-analytic subscales have acceptable reliabilities of 0.79 and 0.83 respectively. The LtA-analytic and LtA-difference (analytic-impulsive difference) correlated well with other the Need for cognition subscale and CRT scores. The correlations involving LtA-impulsive subscale were unexpected and call for further investigation.
