No marks were available for Hong Kong and Osaka subjects or for some children in other samples. Only Taipei and Winnipeg had grades for all (with one missing mark an exception).

Forward- and back-translation will not necessarily pick up subtle differences in scale location of items, for the Japanese “hijo-ni” is generally translated as “very,” regardless of who is doing the translation.
