Reliability and Validity of the HOME Preschool Inventory in Jamaica.
Hayes, Janice S.
Early Child Development and Care, v136 p45-55 Sep 1997
Studied the measurement equivalence of the HOME (Home Observation for Measurement of Environment) inventory in Jamaica. Found that the factor structure in the Jamaican sample was similar to the existing HOME but not an equivalent match. Also found that items related to direct cognitive stimulation by the caregiver are more relevant cross-culturally than the socioemotional and physical environment items. (EV)
