Bais, Frank; Schouten, Barry; Lugtig, Peter; Toepoel, Vera; Arends-Tòth, Judit; Douhou, Salima; Kieruj, Natalia; Morren, Mattijn; Vis, Corrie – Sociological Methods & Research, 2019
Item characteristics can have a significant effect on survey data quality and may be associated with measurement error. Literature on data quality and measurement error is often inconclusive. This could be because item characteristics used for detecting measurement error are not coded unambiguously. In our study, we use a systematic coding…

Landerl, Karin; Freudenthaler, H. Harald; Heene, Moritz; De Jong, Peter F.; Desrochers, Alain; Manolitsis, George; Parrila, Rauno; Georgiou, George K. – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Although phonological awareness (PA) and rapid automatized naming (RAN) are confirmed as early predictors of reading in a large number of orthographies, it is as yet unclear whether the predictive patterns are universal or language specific. This was examined in a longitudinal study across Grades 1 and 2 with 1,120 children acquiring one of five…
