A Test of the Curvilinear Hypothesis with FACES II and III.
Pratt, David M.; Hansen, James C.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v13 n4 p387-92 Oct 1987
Olson's Circumplex Model hypothesizes that cohesiveness and adaptability dimensions measured on Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scales (FACES) have a curvilinear relationship with family functioning. Study testing curvilinear hypothesis indicated that FACES II and III did not adequately operationalize curvilinear hypothesis. Findings suggest use of bipolar item response format in measurement of cohesion and adaptability. (Author/NB)
