In an article published in the University of Richmond Law Review in 2007, Katherine Gustafson and I reviewed the drafting history and the relevant scientific and professional literature, showing that the statutory language referring to IQ testing was intended to incorporate standard professional practice, including recognition of the standard error of measurement in interpreting IQ scores.
If a model performs well, (a) the averaged value of estimates of each parameter (in the 'mean' column) should be close to the true value of the respective parameter; (b) the magnitude of the asymptotic standard error should be close to that of the empirical standard error; and (c) the empirical type I error rate should be close to the nominal value 0.
