Furlong, Michael J.; Feldman, Marcy G.
Psychology in the Schools, v29 n3 p205-12 Jul 1992
Reanalyzed test scores of 153 referred students who received inconsistent placements according to California's discrepancy criterion, which does not take regression into account (standard score distribution procedure). Reanalysis used procedure accounting for regression. Findings revealed that regression "accounted" for significant proportion of inconsistent placements in all three groups (ineligible, resource class, and special day class). (Author/NB)
