Stability of Regular Education Teacher Ratings of Normal and Exceptional Students on the Adjustment Scales for Children and Adolescents (ASCA).
Canivez, Gary L.
The short-term (45-day) stability of the Adjustment Scales for Children and Adolescents (P. McDermott, N. Marston, and D. Stott, 1993) was studied with 51 first and fifth graders, seven of whom were classified as "exceptional/disabled." Significant test-retest reliability coefficients were obtained, and mean differences from test to retest did not exceed 0.5 raw score points. Only two scales (Solitary Aggressive/Impulsive and Lethargic/Hypoactive) showed significant changes across the retest intervals for T scores. Individual variation for some scales was at times quite extreme. Syndromic profile classifications and discriminant classifications were also significantly consistent across the retest interval.
