Abstract

Logistic regression analysis is used to determine the best practices in authorship attribution for English essays, specifically examining the methods available in JGAAP version 4.3 and their performance on problem A of the AAAC corpus. Best practices were determined by ranking the logistic regression coefficient estimates and odds ratios for the set of predictor variables.
