Application of a Rasch Analysis to the Examination of the Perception of Facial Affect among Persons with Mental Retardation.
Gumpel, Tom; Wilson, Mark
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v17 n2 p161-71 Mar-Apr 1996
An instrument assessing perception of nonverbal facial affect was developed and administered to 101 adults with and without mental retardation. Rasch analysis uncovered an intergroup difference in the structure of the latent trait of understanding facial affect. This qualitative difference may account for the limited generalization and maintenance of social skills training effects with persons with mental retardation. (Author/PB)
