    Kφdivergence's statistic family for goodness-of-fit, under the null hypothesis. has an asymptotic chi-squared distribution, however, for small sample, the chi-squared approximation in some cases does not well agree with the exact distribution. In this paper, a closer approximation to the...

    In this research, we investigate the behavior of Cronbach's Coefficient alpha and its new standard error. We systematically analyze the effects of sample size, scale length, strength of item inter-correlations, and scale dimensionality. We demonstrate the beneficial effects of sample size on...

    Two-stage randomized trials are growing in importance in developing adaptive treatment strategies, i.e. treatment policies or dynamic treatment regimes. Usually, the first stage involves randomization to one of the several initial treatments. The second stage of treatment begins when an early...

    Schmidt, Hunter, and Urry (1976) and Sackett and Wade (1983) have examined the n-size requirements for validity studies to reach a specified level of power under two forms of restriction of range. Their results are extended to include two types of range restriction that, although they have not...
