Cabassa, Leopoldo J.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v25 n2 p127-46 May 2003
Examines prominent theoretical models and assumptions about contextual factors that drive acculturation measures, which are used widely in educational research with Hispanics and other minorities. Uses Hispanic acculturation measures, particularly the Bidimensional Acculturation Scale for Hispanics and the Acculturation Rating Scale for Mexican Americans, Revised, to illustrate the application of theoretical foundations in unidimensional and bidimensional (bicultural) empirical measures. Presents recommendations for improving these measures. (Contains 33 references.) (SV)
