Physical Disability Construct Convergence across Instruments: Towards a Universal Metric.
Fisher, William P., Jr.
Journal of Outcome Measurement, v1 n2 p87-113 1997
The stability of a physical disability construct was examined across instruments and samples, not to report a formal equating of instrument calibrations, but to indicate whether such an effort could succeed. Implications of using Rasch analysis, often used in educational research, and the possibility of developing a universal metric are discussed. (SLD)
