Reliable & Clinical Change / Re: Reliable Change index calculator
« Last post by ssimpson on 12 March, 2010, 12:58:52 am »
Hi Dev
It is the Young Schema Inventory (YSQ-L2).  I have looked high and low and found test-retest scores for all the subscales but not a global test-retest score.  That is a good idea to do our own test-retest calculation.  Maybe we could try that,
thanks again
Susan

Hi again Susan,

What's the measure, just in case one of us knows of a test-retest for it? Otherwise, you may have to run a small sample of 'norms' over a two week period and get the test-retest?

Best,
Dev

Thanks Dev, much appreciated.  We have searched high and low for the test-retest, but to no avail unfortunately. 
It is helpful to know this in any case,
best wishes

Reliable & Clinical Change / Re: Reliable Change index calculator

Hi Susan,

I'm afraid not.  :'( You can enter anything you want in that box, but reliable change needs an approximation of error over a two time point assessment to see whether the change in your patient is more than would be expected via measurement error. If the measure you've used has psychometric properties then I'm sure that test-retest is somewhere. The help file on test-retest for reliable change sums all this up.

I'd suggest posting the measure you used and seeing whether anyone knows of the test-retest reliability of the instrument.

Hope this helps,

Dev

Reliable & Clinical Change / Reliable Change index calculator
« Last post by ssimpson on 05 March, 2010, 07:54:34 am »
Hello,
I am wanting to calculate a Reliable Change Index for a case series measuring change in patients receiving psychological therapy. I have used the ClinTools programme previously for Effect size and have found it to be very useful. I have attempted to use the Reliable Change calculator on the programme and have come across a bit of a stumbling block. In the ClinTools programme, it requests test-retest reliability scores and the standard deviation of that sample. I was wondering whether it would be atall possible to use an alternative measure of reliability (internal consistency) instead of test-rest, as it is the only data which we have access to at present.
Many thanks,
Susan Simpson

Installation / Operation / Re: Getting 'type mismatch' error

Hi there,

depends on which problem it is. If problem 1 then nothing we can do - it's a 'feature' of windows. You need full admin rights to install.

If problem 2 - what country you in?

If another problem (3) - please describe it.

Thanks,

Dev

Effect Sizes / Re: 2 questions related to effect size calculations - please help!
« Last post by Dev on 22 July, 2009, 05:12:16 am »
Indeed Ya-Ya, all are estimates to guage how we're going. I've recently had a paper accepted in JCCP where we use the between groups effect size for a repeated measures design. The purists would baulk, but the difference is at the second, third or, and most likely, fourth decimal point - pointless.

Best,

Help Using / Re: Is is possible to import data from Excel?

Sorry Ya-Ya, But you'll have to open and edit in Access. Your Uni should have a copy (you said in a previous post you were at Uni - well, had a suprvisor which I assumedwas at a Uni). Just don't use Access 2007 as we haven't tried that version.

Cheers,

Wow, thanks so much Dev!!! Now, if I can make things more laborious, I will...

Unfortunately I don't have Access anymore (well I have an old version of Office 2000 Pro with Access but I don't really want to install it with Office 2003. So, for some reason I never uninstalled the Works program that came on my computer. After trying to find a way to open the file in Excel (there may be a way but I am no expert with this stuff), and the Works database program, I remembered that SPSS could open Access files. So, please tell me if there is a simpler way, but for now I guess I'll edit the data in SPSS, and then save it as an Access file, and then follow your instructions to save it as a met file.  Hope it works and thanks again!

ya-ya

p.s. ok, so I can open the file in Excel but I can't find a way to save it as an .mdb file, so guess I'll stick with the SPSS method!





Hi Ya-Ya,

Sure is. But it's a work-around at this stage.

1. Export a demo copy to Access to work with. I have attached an exported one you can use (inside the zip file YaYa.zip) if you don't know what I mean.
2. Cut and paste from the excel sheet you have your data in into the right columns of the exported access sheet which you have open using MS Access (keep column titles, etc).
3. Literally rename the edited (i.e., originally exported) Access data sheet from ***.mdb (e.g., Myexporteddata.mdb) to ***.met (e.g., mydata.met).
4. Open the new edited Access file with the ESG.

A bit laborious, but it works.

Good Luck,

Dev
