Tematiche di ricerca

Costruzione, sviluppo e validazione di test, scale di misura e algoritmi di analisi dei dati

Sviluppo di strumenti per la misurazione di costrutti psicologici; Adattamento al contesto italiano di preesistenti scale di misura; Studi di validità e valutazione delle caratteristiche psicometriche di test; Riflessioni metodologiche all’interno degli approcci della Teoria Classica dei Test (TCT), dell’Item Response Theory (IRT), dell’analisi fattoriale e dello scaling multidimensionale. I lavori su questa tematica si articolano su diverse aree:

·        Measurement in Clinical, Social and Work Psychology
·        Measurement in Developmental and Educational Psychology
·        Methods

Modellizzazione e misurazione dell’efficacia di interventi

Lo studio e la misurazione degli effetti di interventi in ambito psicologico e di cura rappresenta un campo di studio molto fertile, date le difficoltà metodologiche connesse e la sempre maggiore attenzione di enti e istituzioni alla quantificazione degli esiti. Il nostro gruppo si occupa di studiare e applicare metodi innovativi di valutazione degli outcome e di formulare modelli che esplicitino il funzionamento degli interventi. 

Benessere e qualità della vita

Il tema del benessere e della qualità della vita ha progressivamente acquisito un ruolo di primaria importanza nello sviluppo delle policy pubbliche, diventando parallelamente un oggetto di studio prioritario per la ricerca in ambito psicologico, nelle scienze sociali, e in ambito clinico. Il nostro gruppo si concentra sulle evoluzioni più recenti dei metodi per la valutazione del benessere e della qualità della vita, contribuendo alla comprensione teorica e all’assessment del costrutto. 

Psychoinformatics

L’ambito di ricerca delle pychoinformatics utilizza strumenti e tecniche nate nell’ambito dell’informatica della computer science per migliorare l’acquisizione, organizzazione, e costruzione, di dati di tipo psicologica. In particolare, la pervasiva diffusione di Internet, e il crescente successo di piattaforme online che facilitano la condivisione di contenuti da parte degli utenti, come i siti di social network e microblogging, hanno favorito il recente sviluppo di ricerche che utilizzano dati condivisi dagli utenti online per lo studio e la predizione di costrutti psicosociali a livello individuale, come personalità, benessere, e comportamenti.
