DiStefano, Christine; Greer, Fred; Liu, Jin
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v34 n6 p595-599 Sep 2016
The underlying structure of the Behavioral and Emotional Screening System, Teacher Rating Scale-Preschool was investigated with a replication sample. Ratings from more than 3,000 students were used and four alternative models were investigated. As with prior research, a bifactor model with four factors was identified. The results supported an (Emerging) School Problems factor and yielded similar patterns of relationships with specific and general factors identified with prior research.
