## Meta-analytic correlations of Graduate Record Examination subtests with graduate grade point average

### Description

Correlations between GRE subtests and graduate student GPA from Kuncel et al. (2001).

### Usage

```
data(jobchar)
```

### Format

list with entries `r`

(mean observed correlations), `rho`

(mean
corrected correlations), `n`

(sample sizes), `sevar_r`

(sampling error
variances for mean observed correlations), `sevar_rho`

(sampling error
variances for mean corrected correlations), and `source`

(character labels
indicating which meta-analytic correlations came from the same source)

### Details

GRE–GPA correlations in `rho`

are corrected for direct range restriction on
the GRE and unreliability in GPA. Subtest intercorrelations in `rho`

are
observed correlations computed among applicant norm samples. These values are
also used in `r`

. Due to compensatory selection on GRE scores, these values
will not accurately reflect subtest intercorrelations in selected-student
(range-restricted) samples. `sevar_rho`

and`sevar_r`

for GRE subtest
intercorrelations are computed with an assumed
SD_{ρ} = .02.
