The conditional frequency analysis obtained imitation, similar reaction, and transmission of signal effects.
The expected conditional frequency of an incorrect answer on the final exam, given the incorrect answer on the pretest, is therefore (.20)(.75) = 0.15.
This procedure is repeated for each of the questions analyzed, using the actual distributions of pretest results to compute the expected conditional frequency for that question.
