The report describes and illustrates a method of selecting items and scoring responses so as to produce maximal predictive validity for a specified criterion. The responses must be binary, e.g., correctincorrect or yesno. Results show that the method, stepwise pattern analysis, yields higher predictive validities for a small number of items than other methods do for many more. Through its ability to score both aptitude and biographical items together, moreover, pattern analysis can provide an automatic correction for possible test bias. Author
