Objective Criteria for Evaluation of Grading Scales.
Avner, R. A.
This report compares maximum linear prediction, maximum total correct classifications for a group, and maximum probability of correct classification for an individual as objective criteria for univariate grading scales. Since the goals of valid prediction and valid classification lead to conflicting criteria, it is possible that a compromise measure consisting of a standardized score with a variable pass-fail point may provide the best measure available.
