Gower, J. C. and Payne, R. W. 1975. A comparison of different criteria for selecting binary tests in diagnostic keys. Biometrika. 62 (3), pp. 665-672.
|Authors||Gower, J. C. and Payne, R. W.|
The problem of selecting tests to be used in nonprobabilistic binary diagnostic keys is discussed. Five selection criteria are compared and it is shown that all except a new criterion suffer from some deficiency. This criterion cannot be extended easily to cope with multi-response tests but another criterion, which behaves satisfactorily with binary tests, can be extended in some circumstances. The only criterion which can always be used with multi-response tests is least satisfactory for binary tests.
