Longitudinal invariance of childhood behaviours and temperament: disentangling changes, states, traits, and measurement error
Hugo Cogo Moreira
This project is focused on providing longitudinal validity evidence (also known as construct validity or, more recently, validity evidence based on internal consistency) of the main development and behavioral scales used in the MoBa cohort at earlier stages of development. The scales are M-CHAT, ESAT, ASQ, EAS, and CBCL. These scales track autism behaviors, childhood development, temperament, and mental health. Invariance is an important psychometric feature that ensures that changes in the scores across time are due to development changes and not a source of noise or bias towards how the items of the scales are answered across time.
