Atrial fibrillation as an independent risk factor for stroke: the Framingham Study.
The impact of nonrheumatic atrial fibrillation, hypertension, coronary heart disease, and cardiac failure on stroke incidence was examined in 5,070 participants in the Framingham Study after 34 years… Expand
Predictors of Early High School Dropout: A Test of Five Theories.
This study compared the adequacy of 5 theories to predict dropping out of high school before the 10th grade. These theories include full mediation by academic achievement and direct effects related… Expand

Contributions of morphology beyond phonology to literacy outcomes of upper elementary and middle-school students.
Using structural equation modeling the authors evaluated the contribution of morphological awareness, phonological memory, and phonological decoding to reading comprehension, reading vocabulary,… Expand
Role of mechanics in composing of elementary school students: A new methodological approach.
The authors used multiple-group structural equation modeling to analyze structural relationships between latent factors underlying separate measures of handwriting, spelling, and composing in Grades… Expand
