The Unique Contribution of Home Literacy Environment to Differences in Early Literacy Skills.
Griffin, Elizabeth A.; Morrison, Frederick J.
Early Child Development and Care, v127-128 p233-43 1997
Evaluated the psychometric utility of a home literacy environment measure. Examined the measure's accuracy in predicting unique variance in children's performance on academic achievement measures after accounting for other important sources of variance, such as IQ and maternal education. Claims that this measure is psychometrically strong and uniquely predictive of differences in early literacy (but not numeracy) skills. (MOK)
