Lennox, Richard D.; Dennis, Michael L.
Evaluation and Program Planning, v17 n4 p399-407 Oct-Dec 1994
Potential methods are explored for removing or otherwise controlling random measurement error, assessment artifacts, irrelevant variation in outcome measures, and confounding sources of covariation in a structural equations model. Using examples with measures of quality of life and functioning, the authors consider these methods for field experiments. (SLD)
