An Item Analysis Of The Child Behavior Checklist With Preschool Children With Autism, Heather Rhea Orten

Gender Differences In Written Expression At The Elementary Level, Ashley D. Melloy

A couple of studies indicated there are gender differences on CBM-Written Expression measures. This study sought to determine if gender differences exist at the elementary level and, if so, at what grade level such differences ...
