Regression assumptions in clinical psychology research practice—a systematic review of common misconceptions

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Shane Mueller –– The article provides a useful look at (mis)-use of a common tool in the discipline. But this tools is used across most areas of science, and so may have broad interest.
Student evaluations of teaching: teaching quantitative courses can be hazardous to one’s career

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Peter Graf –– I believe this article will increase awareness of the pitfalls involved in student teaching evaluations. Such evaluations are used as if they were fact, rather than popularity indexes. If I were the author of the article, I would conclude by speculating that students evaluations are comparable to likes on Facebook.

Developing the Leuven Embedded Figures Test (L-EFT): testing the stimulus features that influence embedding

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Anthony Barnhart –– The previous version of the Embedded Figures Test has been the focus of much research and has led to rampant theorizing that moves well beyond what can be inferred from performance on the measure. The new test, developed and tested in this manuscript, allows for enhanced clarity on the mechanisms underlying performance on the measure and will be a boon for future research in the area of feature embedding and individual differences.
