Response to Mathias and Nettelbeck on the Structure of Competence: Need for Theory-Based Methods to Test Theory-Based Questions.
Greenspan, Stephen; McGrew, Kevin S.
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v17 n2 p145-52 Mar-Apr 1996
This paper responds to a 1992 study in which it was argued that the structure of intelligence in adults with severe mental retardation deviates from Greenspan's model, in which social and practical intelligence form separate factors. Application of confirmatory factor analysis to the original correlation matrix found the Greenspan model to be plausible. (Author/PB)
