Base Rate Theory and School Psychology.
Burns, Candace W.
School Psychology Review, v19 n3 p356-66 1990
Focuses on one judgmental issue in cognitive psychology that depicts mixed results--subjects' use of and failure to use base rates in category predictions. Examines conditions that induce or prevent subjects from using base rates, and uses these conditions to analyze study of special education decision making. Evaluates potential of base rate theory for studying school psychologists' judgments. (Author/NB)
