IMPROVEMENT OF CLINICAL PREDICTION THROUGH SPECIAL TRAINING.
KRAUSKOPF, C.J.; AND OTHERS
A SERIES OF STUDIES WAS REPORTED ON INCREASING ACCURACY IN CLINICAL PREDICTION BY USING AN IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK PROCEDURE. THE GENERAL DESIGN IMPOSED EIGHT EXPERIMENTS AND THREE SETS OF ITEMS. SET ONE TESTED PREDICTIVE LEVEL BEFORE FEEDBACK. SET TWO WAS THE TRAINING SET. SET THREE TESTED THE EFFECT OF FEEDBACK TRAINING. THE PREDICTOR VARIABLE WAS TEST SCORES OBTAINED FROM THE SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ACHIEVEMENT TEST (SCAT "T"). THE PREDICTED VARIABLE WAS "PASS" OR "FAIL" BASED ON THE GRADE POINT AVERAGES (GPA) OF THE COLLEGE MALE SUBJECTS. THE PROBABILITY OF A CORRECT RESPONSE BY FEEDBACK TRAINING WAS INCREASED. IT WAS FOUND THAT COUNSELORS CAN MAKE MORE ACCURATE PREDICTIONS WHEN THERE IS IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK OF INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR ACCURACY. (RS)
