001) and produces a significant final beta weight
([beta] = .
2] for Step 2 and the beta weight
associated with the interaction term were significant, a new variable was created to represent high (1 SD above the mean) and low (1 SD below the mean) role ambiguity (or hierarchical plateau).
Improving overall GPA was the dominant motivator in all funding source categories and it was the highest standardized beta weight
in 76 of the 127 individual regression models.
As predicted, a significant positive beta weight
was found between I and God control.
The standardized Beta weight
for the first stage of the opportunity recognition process, idea discovery ([beta] = -.
However, the negative beta weight
and accompanying figure drawn using the regression equation (see Figure 1) indicates that the relationship between enjoyment from father and degree of involvement holds the expected "[upside downn capital"u"curve] shape.
In eight of the nine cases where it was not the most important discriminator, the beta weight
was at least half the size of the most important discriminator's beta weight
The beta weight
for work locus of control was significant at .
The individual beta weight
patterns also suggest students seldom focused on more than one motivator in making their valence decisions.
The only other variable for which a beta weight
was found to be statistically significant had a structure coefficient that suggested very little in the way of a unique contribution to the model (-.
The beta weight
indicated that, as maternal depressive affect increases from year i to year 2, child conduct problems increase.
Support for the hypothesis is found if the beta weight
is negative and the confidence interval around the beta weight
does not include zero (a 90% confidence interval was used due to the small sample size).
