The Generalizability of the Matching Familiar Figures Test.
Watkins, John M.; And Others
Generalizability theory was applied to the Matching Familiar Figures Test (MFF), an instrument commonly employed to assess reflection-impulsivity in children, in order to analyze the dependability of the MFF at four grade levels: second, third, fourth, and fifth. The MFF was individually administered to 114 boys. A completely crossed, two-facet random model design was used to provide a multidimensional framework for examining the dependability of the MFF. Coefficients of generalizability were derived from this design for the MFF error and latency scores at each grade level. Results showed that the MFF latency score was a more dependable measure than the MFF error score. In addition, the number of testing occasions made a more significant contribution to the generalizability of the MFF than the number of items. (Author/GDC)
