Based on this article and your knowledge of college-admissions tests, what variables would you include in a multiple regression model to predict ACT scores? Be certain to include dummy variables (categorical variables).

After deciding on the variables to include in the model, explain how stepwise regression, R2adjusted and Cp could be used to improve upon the model.


Solution Summary

The solution, which is included in an attached Word document, covers the variables suggested for inclusion in the multiple regression, including dummy variables. Ways to use R2adjusted, Cp, and stepwise regression to improve the model is also explained.
