The Concept of Adaptive Behavior.
Oakland, Thomas
Two papers from a Houston seminar on the concept of adaptive behavior provide a review of adaptive behavior measures and a discussion of Jane Mercer's assessment model. Tables present information on administration and content of eight measures: the American Association on Mental Deficiency (AAMD) Clinical, and AAMD School, Caine-Levine, California Preschool, Camelot, Mercer ABIC, Preschool Attainment Record, and The Vineland Social Maturity Scale. The use of many assessment instruments and the pluralistic perspective are said to be among the distinguishing features of Jane Mercer's System of Multicultural Pluralistic Assessment. (CL)
