A Note on the Determination of "Acceptable" Performance in Thorndike's Standard of Fair Selection.
Brown, Charles
Journal of Educational Measurement, v17 n3 p203-09 Fall 1980
The determination of acceptable performance in Thorndike's constant ratio standard of fair selection is considered. It is shown that suitable choice of acceptable performance can make any minority-majority selection disparity consistent with Thorndike's standard. A rule for determining acceptable performance which avoids the Petersen-Novick paradox is proposed. (Author/RD)
