Furlong, Michael J.
Psychology in the Schools, v25 n2 p132-43 Apr 1988
Examined implementation of California's mandate that the simple difference score distribution model be used as part of state Learning Disability eligibility criteria in six California school districts. Results revealed that placement decisions were influenced by students' discrepancy scores, but that prereferral status (initial evaluation versus reevaluation) was better predictor of postevaluation special education status.
