The Proper Sequence for Correcting Correlation Coefficients for Range Restriction and Unreliability.
Stauffer, Joseph M.; Mendoza, Jorge L.
Psychometrika, v66 n1 p63-68 Mar 2001
Uses classical test theory to show that it is the nature of the range restriction, rather than the nature of the available reliability coefficient, that determines the sequence for applying corrections for range restriction and unreliability. Shows how the common rule of thumb for choosing the sequence is tenable only when the correction does not include the variable on which the selection occurs. (SLD)
