Abstract : When predicting group membership, success on an external criterion, mastery in a particular subject area, etc., there are of course many discriminant analysis procedures that might be applied. In many cases the techniques considered are a function of the type of data that is available. The goal in this paper is to discuss some of the author's recent work that is relevant to discriminant analysis, comment on recent related investigations by other investigators, and suggest directions for future research.
