Minnesota Classification of Aphasia: A mean value of 0-1 scores of 44 cases classified as Group 1, 2 or Minor B was significantly lower than that of 28 cases of Group 3, 4 or Minor Cases of Group 5, irreversible aphasic syndrome had the highest mean value of 0-1 score. Follow up study: Changes of the 0-1 score were more sensitive and acceptable than another global evaluation of aphasia. This study also revealed that all of the cases of excellent or good prognosis had scores below 0.190, on the other hand, all of the cases scored more than 0.700 had deteriorated in follow up period. From these results, 0-1 score appears to be a good method to evaluate severity of aphasia covering almost all essential signs and symptoms of aphasia and sensitive enough detect minor changes of aphasic distrubance.
An s-p score analysis has become popular among some school teachers. In this paper, the basic characters of an s-p score table are presented that is constructed by sorting and rearranging the entries in the item score matrix. The linear model simulating the s-p score matrix is presented. Using the result of this model and the real data in class rooms, the relation between the s-p score table and structure of items is discassed.
Although, after three decades since invention, the statistical decision theory has contributed to the development of statistical theories and operations research, its own basis of thought, i.e., the idea of decision-making under uncertainty, found practically no application to case study. So many statisticians have been absorbed in mathematical refinement for the decision theory to expedite statistical theory that the applicability to case study has received undue ignorance. The article deals as case study with how to treat a public officer now under the criminal trial, i.e., whether to dismiss him as the law requires or apply the discretionary measure. That depends on the sentence, labor relations, authoritative policy and many other factors.
A generalized definition of the sth order interactions is given for multiway arrays, from which the similar properties with ANOVA model are derived. The problem of maximization of the highest order correlation function is solved. Moreover, an expression decomposing multiway arrays is shown as a recurrent algorithm that is an extension of the singular value decomposition of matrices. Applications of the decomposition to multiway contingency tables and to the multiway classified data are outlined. This research develops Iwatsubo(1974)and Yoshizawa(1975), and relates with Bahadur's expression and Lancaster's definition of no interaction for contingency tables. The definition and expression given here are more general and constructive than theirs.
