Methods for Smoothing Expectancy Tables Applied to the Prediction of Success in College
Perrin, David W.; Whitney, Douglas R.
Journal of Educational Measurement, 13, 3, 223-31, F 76
The gains in accuracy resulting from applying any of the smoothing methods appear sufficient to justify the suggestion that all expectancy tables used by colleges for admission, guidance, or planning purposes should be smoothed. These methods on the average, reduce the criterion measure (an index of inaccuracy) by 30 percent. (Author/MV)
