Breidenbach, Daniel H.; French, Brian F.
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v30 n5 p478-487 Oct 2012
The Brigance Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills-II (CIBS-II) is the newest version of a long-standing instrument that is useful for identifying student achievement, identifying and monitoring academic strengths and weaknesses, obtaining data to support referrals, and reporting progress for individual educational plans. Since the CIBS-II is intended to comply with requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), validity studies are required. This study provides evidence to support the use of CIBS-II scores. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used to evaluate the proposed factor model and rival models. A randomly split sample design allowed for cross-validation evidence. The best-fitting model was in accordance with the proposed structure. (Contains 5 tables.)
