Elliott, Rogers; Strenta, A. Christopher
Journal of Educational Measurement, v25 n4 p333-47 Win 1988
The reliability of a method of adjusting grade point averages for differences in college-departmental grading standards was examined, using 409 female and 518 male Dartmouth graduates. Such adjustments' effects on predictive validity of high-school grades, Scholastic Aptitude Test scores, and achievement test scores were assessed, including gender and race. (TJH)
