  1. r= stability correlations T1-T2, alpha = Cronbach's internal consistency alpha, r M= average inter-item correlation, CFI = Comparative Fit Index, rSEM= true stability estimates in Structural Equation Modelling (SEM), s.e. = standard error of the rSEMestimate, M|Δ|z = mean absolute change, P |>1z = rate of absolute change > 1.0z, P |<0.5z = rate of absolute change < 0.5z.
