  2. a)Correlations for Sample 2A (N = 463) calculated with recoded (0–4) response categories to increase comparability with Sample 3 + 4 (N = 291)
  3. b)CRMTL, CRSE: Results only for 8th semester students prior to taking the course in communication and peer-supervision
  4. c)Wider age distribution in Sample 3 + 4 than 2A
