|Summary||Comments about sensitivity to change|
|General remarks||Some researchers have found very little variability in parent report on this scale and question the usefulness. We recommend also considering the Home Learning Environment Scale (41 items).
From the developers, "It is to be used for research purposes only and should not be used for diagnostic or other testing purposes. This measure was developed and validated using a target population of children in a large urban school district, which serves a large percentage of low-income, minority children. Use of these norms with a very different population is not recommended, in keeping with national standards for educational and psychological testing (Standard 12.3, AERA, APA, & NCME, 1999)."
