Models for Analyzing Comparative Advantage by David Andrew Kendrick

By David Andrew Kendrick

Recent fiscal heritage means that a key point in monetary development and improvement for plenty of nations has been an competitive export coverage and a complementary import coverage.

The Kernel Method of Test Equating by Alina A. von Davier

By Alina A. von Davier

Kernel Equating (KE) is a robust, smooth and unified method of attempt equating. it really is in accordance with a versatile relations of equipercentile-like equating features and includes the linear equating functionality as a unique case. Any equipercentile equating approach has 5 steps or elements. they're: 1) pre-smoothing; 2) estimation of the score-probabilities at the objective inhabitants; three) continuization; four) computing and diagnosing the equating functionality; five) computing the normal mistakes of equating and comparable accuracy measures. KE brings those steps jointly in an geared up complete instead of treating them as disparate problems.

KE exploits pre-smoothing by means of becoming log-linear types to attain info, and comprises it into step five) above. KE presents new instruments for diagnosing a given equating functionality, and for evaluating or extra equating services as a way to choose from them. during this publication, KE is utilized to the 4 significant equating designs and to either Chain Equating and Post-Stratification Equating for the Non-Equivalent teams with Anchor try Design.

This ebook might be a major reference for numerous teams: (a) Statisticians and others attracted to the idea in the back of equating equipment and using model-based statistical tools for facts smoothing in utilized paintings; (b) Practitioners who have to equate tests—including people with those obligations in checking out businesses, kingdom checking out enterprises and faculty districts; and (c) teachers in psychometric and dimension courses. The authors imagine a few familiarity with linear and equipercentile try out equating, and with matrix algebra.
