Normative Growth Expectations Must Be Realistic: A Response to Phillips and Clarizio.
Yen, Wendy M.
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, v7 n4 p16-17 Win 1988
In their discussion of problems related to identifying learning disabilities with individually administered achievement tests, Phillips and Clarizio incorrectly conclude that developmental standard score scales produce unrealistic expectations for the growth of low-achieving students. By definition, these scores state how much the norm group's scores changed at each percentile studied. (SLD)
