Abstract

Two quantitative classifiers for assigning attachment status from infant interactive behavior ratings were evaluated. One classifier included crying, agreed an average of 83% with trained coders, but over-classified infants as secure. The second classifier excluded crying, achieved an 86% agreement rate, and reproduced original distributions.
