Too Simple to Be Useful: A Comment on Feinberg and Wainer (2014)
Sinharay, Sandip; Haberman, Shelby; Boughton, Keith
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, v34 n3 p6-8 Fall 2015
Feinberg and Wainer (2014) provided a simple equation to approximate/predict a subscore's value. The purpose of this note is to point out that their equation is often inaccurate in that it does not always predict a subscore's value correctly. Therefore, the utility of their simple equation is not clear.
