Statistical Adjustments of Law School Grade Point Averages. Statistical Report. LSAC Research Report Series.
Young, John W.
In this study, two statistical approaches for adjusting grades were tested on data obtained from four law schools, with samples of 157, 188, 206, and 191. These approaches were previously validated using data on undergraduates but have not been used in a study of postgraduate performance. Neither method yielded consistent improvements in the predictive validity of Law School Admission Test (LSAT) scores and undergraduate grades. The single exception was for School D, where a significant improvement in the correlation of test scores with law school grades was observed. Two appendixes contain data from the law schools. (Contains 7 tables and 18 references.) (Author/SLD)
