Example text

Because the school plays such a critical role in development, it is also the context in which many problems of development originate or, at any rate, express themselves.  The school also represents a useful venue for introducing interventions designed to address these problems and, for this reason, assessments focusing on the school environment assume considerable importance.  Although their role in development has been largely ne­ Page 31 glected, increasing theoretical attention is being paid to these institutions and some beginning efforts are being made to assess their characteristics.

The core of this system is a set of diagnostic categories that define a wide range of pathological behaviors.  The DSM­IV system is examined in more detail later.  Instead of deducing constructs from a theoretical framework, constructs are induced from empirical data.  The dimensions represented in the MMPI­A were developed through this procedure.  The definitions of cognitive functioning underlying our standard intelligence tests were derived through factor analyses of performance data.  Many of the interview and rating techniques examined in subsequent chapters are based on constructs derived through these empirical procedures.

It is worth noting here, however, some general problems associated with these efforts.  However, it is an important one, and I have occasion to return to the issue in later chapters.  Thus, instead of hyperactive, the individual might be characterized as at the 90th percentile (relative to some normative group) on a continuum of hyperactivity.  Similarly, Hoge and Andrews (1992) and Loeber, Keenan, Lahey, Green, and Thomas (1993) raised questions about the correspondence among a number of clinically and empirically derived definitions of the conduct disorder construct (also see Kagan, 1988).
