Simultaneous Optimization of Decisions Using a Linear Utility Function.
Vos, Hans J.
Journal of Educational Statistics, v15 n4 p309-40 Win 1990
An approach is presented to simultaneously optimize decision rules for combinations of elementary decisions through a framework derived from Bayesian decision theory. The developed linear utility model for selection-mastery decisions was applied to a sample of 43 first year medical students to illustrate the procedure. (SLD)
