The Adaptive Behavior Scale: A Study of Criterion Validity.
Spreat, Scott
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v85 n1 p61-68 Jul 1980
The validity of the Adaptive Behavior Scale (ABS) for placement purposes was estimated using as Ss 95 formerly institutionalized retarded persons, 97 institutional residents referred for discharge, and 178 institutional residents. Results suggest that knowledge of an individual's ABS scores would enable a test user to make valid estimates of group membership. (Author/PHR)
