Development and Validation of a Unidimensional Maltreatment Scale in the Add Health Data Set
Marszalek, Jacob M.; Hamilton, Jessica L.
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v45 n1 p3-17 Jan 2012
Four maltreatment items were examined from Wave III (N = 13,516) of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. Item analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, cross-validation, reliability estimates, and convergent validity coefficients strongly supported the validity of using the four items as a unidimensional composite. Implications for education and practice are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
