Reliability and Validity of Selected Criteria of Light's Retention Scale.
Westbury, Marilyn L.
Canadian Journal of Education, v24 n4 p460-64 Fall 1999
Studied the reliability and validity of Light's Retention Scale (LRS) (H. Light, 1986), an instrument to evaluate whether a student would benefit from retention, with 93 Canadian students who had repeated an elementary school grade. Findings suggest that the LRS is not a reliable or valid instrument. Selected scale items did not predict improvement in cognitive ability in this sample. (SLD)
