Structural Modelling by Example offers a comprehensive overview of the application of structural equation models in the social and behavioral sciences and in educational research. It is devoted in nearly equal proportions to substantive issues and to methodological ones. The substantive section comprises case studies of the use of these models in a number of disciplines. The authors emphasize the reasons for modelling by these methods, the processes involved in defining the model, and the interpretation of the results. The methodological section comprises investigations of the behavior of structural equation modelling methods under a number of conditions. The aim is to clarify the situations in which these methods can usefully be applied and the interpretations that can be made. All researchers with a basic understanding of regression and factor analysis will find this book to be an invaluable resource as they seek to evaluate the possibilities of these new approaches for their own data.

Ziel dieses Buches ist es zu zeigen, wie sich im Kontext empirischer Evaluationsforschung der Rational Choice-Ansatz als integratives, transdisziplinäres Rahmenkonzept zur Modellierung vermittelnder, kausaler Mechanismen nutzen läßt. Anhand einer längsschnittlichen Evaluationsstudie, bei der der Einfluß von zwei verkehrspolitischen Maßnahmen auf die PKW-Nutzung und die Nutzung anderer Verkehrsmittel untersucht wird, wird das Rational Choice-Konzept theoriegeleiteter Evaluationsforschung praktisch demonstriert.

Das Ziel der vorliegenden Untersuchung ist die Konstruktion und Überprüfung eines Fragebogens zur Erfassung und Messung von Fahrkomfort und Fahrspaß. Der Fragebogen soll dazu beitragen, die zuverlässige Bewertung von Fahrerassistenzsystemen bezüglich ihrer Wirkung auf Fahrkomfort und Fahrspaß zu ermitteln. Als Basis für die Entwicklung des Fragebogens dient das motivationspsychologische Modell „Joy and Convenience in Activities“ (Engeln, Engelbrecht & Kieninger, 2008), das die vier Konstrukte „Spaߓ, „Komfort“, „Diskomfort“ und „Spaßmangel“ sowie deren Beziehungen zueinander darstellt. In diesem Buch werden die Entwicklungsschritte eines Messinstrumentes für Fahrkomfort und Fahrspaß vorgestellt. Sie basieren auf einer explorativen Expertenbefragung, zwei Face-to-Face-Autofahrerbefragungen sowie auf einer bundesweiten Onlinebefragung mit 1800 nach bestimmten Repräsentativitätskriterien einbezogenen Autofahrern. Die Entwicklung des Fragebogens findet in mehreren Schritten als iterativer Prozess statt, indem mittels Itemanalysen die Items hinsichtlich ihrer Passung und ihrer Formulierung überarbeitet und die Skalen zur Erfassung von Fahrkomfort und Fahrspaß überprüft werden.
