Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology

Early intervention can mitigate the impact of social determinants of health (including adverse childhood experiences) and promote health equity. Yet to realize this potential for health promotion and prevention, it will be necessary for pediatric integrated primary care to shift focus upstream — ensuring a 2-generation approach (e.g., parenting...

Applied Measurement in Education

Maintaining equivalent performance standards across forms is a psychometric challenge exacerbated by small samples. In this study, the accuracy of two equating methods (Rasch anchored calibration and nominal weights mean) and four anchor item selection methods were investigated in the context of very small samples (N = 10). Overall, nominal weights mean equating slightly outperformed Rasch equating for three of the four anchor item selection methods, but Rasch equating slightly outperformed nominal weights mean equating when anchor items were selected to be near the cut score. The results...
