Cross-Classification Approaches to the Study of Developmental Relationships.
The richness of the information available in cross-classification tables, compared to the information conveyed in the typical correlation coefficient, is emphasized in this paper. The kinds of information to be found in cross-classification tables are described, and several examples of the use of cross-classification patterns in research are provided. Model fitting procedures for determining which of several patterns makes the best fit to a set of data are briefly illustrated. It is argued that analyses based on the identification of specific patterns in the distribution of observations in cross-classification tables provide more information about developmental relationships between tasks than analyses based on the computation of simple measures of statistical association.
