The long-term or longitudinal method
requires a more elaborate set-up.
The research will address three complementary objectives: (1) to what degree can variations in ToM ability across the life-span be accounted for by changes in EF skills, (2) how do ToM ability and EF skill change over time in different age groups (using longitudinal methods
The purpose of the present study was to examine mathematics growth using three different longitudinal methods for identifying the SWD subgroup and to contrast achievement outcomes from these methods with the results obtained when SWD membership is determined on an annual basis, as specified in NCLB.
Table 1 depicts the demographic characteristics for the SWD and non-SWD groups with the three longitudinal methods of identifying SWD.
Finally, differences in growth model results were not tested directly due to the overlap in the students identified with the three longitudinal methods.
Characteristics of Students With (SWD) and Without Disabilities (Non-SWD) With the Three Longitudinal Methods of Identifying SWDs.
Indeed, many EMA studies borrow assessment strategies from a well-established tradition of longitudinal methods, such as experience sampling, diary methods, and event-contingent responding (Csikszentmihalyi and Larson 1987; Nelson 1977), and use many of these methods in concert to assess phenomena of interest.
However, the distinctions between EMA and these other intensive longitudinal methods seem to be diminishing.
EMA methods offer a number of important advantages over more traditional global-recall methods as well as other longitudinal methods assessing broader time scales (for more detailed reviews, see Collins and Muraven 2007; Shiffman et al.
