A Reply to Greenspan and McGrew's "Need for Theory-Based Methods to Test Theory-Based Questions."
Mathias, J. L.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v17 n2 p153-60 Mar-Apr 1996
This paper discusses inconsistencies in Greenspan and McGrew's argument that confirmatory, rather than exploratory, factor analysis should be utilized in testing Greenspan's model of adaptive intelligence in adults with severe mental retardation. It is argued that problems with the data set should be addressed through further research rather than reanalysis of the original data. (Author/PB)
