The Linear Utility Model for Optimal Selection.
Mellenbergh, Gideon J.; van der Linden, Wim J.
Psychometrika, v46 n3 p283-93 Sep 1981
A linear utility model is introduced for optimal selection where several subpopulations of applicants are to be distinguished. Using this model, procedures are described for obtaining optimal cutting scores in subpopulations in quota-free as well as quota-restricted selection situations. The procedures are demonstrated with empirical data. (Author/JKS)
