8 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 7 Grammar School selection A test selects the top 25% at age 11: 11% passed who should not have 18% rightly passed 60% rightly failed 11% failed who should not have Based on a correlation of 0.7

9 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 8 Variance accounted for Cognitive measure of prior attainment / aptitude Academic achievement r = 0.7 (r 2 = 0.49)

10 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 9 Measure of socioeconomic status r = 0.3 (r 2 = 0.09) Academic achievement High SES Low SES

11 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 10 Aggregated or Individual? “Ecological Fallacy” Socioeconomic status School 1 + School 2 + School 3 + School 4 + Academic achievement Correlations for: Individual students = 0.3 School means = 0.9

12 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 11 r = 0.03 (n = 30) Beware small samples: But add one extreme point... r = 0.33

22 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 21 Issues in regression Check residuals are Normally distributed Check for collinearity in explanatory variables Use adjusted R 2 Which explanatory variables to include?

24 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 23 Measures with less than perfect reliability A test with test-retest correlation r=0.7 is repeated after an interval. What would you expect for the TEST 2 scores of A person who achieved a very high score on TEST 1 A person who achieved a very low score on TEST 1 How will the overall distribution of scores on the two tests compare?

26 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 25 Two subgroups with different means Students with high SES tend to get higher test scores. Two students have the same TEST 1 scores, but one is high SES, the other low SES. What would you expect their TEST 2 scores to be?

29 © 2005 Robert Coe, University of Durham 28 Or is it just regression to the mean?
