"Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics" Revisited: A Comparison of Three Methods of Representing Change.
Pike, Gary R.
Research in Higher Education, v33 n1 p71-83 Feb 1992
A study compared three methods for measuring college student growth and development in the course of a college education: (1) gain scores; (2) residual scores; and (3) repeated measures. Analyses indicated that all three are seriously flawed, although repeated measures offer the greatest potential for adequately representing student change. (Author/MSE)
