  1. MSE mean squared error, MAE mean absolute error, OLS ordinary least squares, GLM generalized linear model; OLS1 and GLM1 used the total CAT score as the explanatory variable. OLS2 and GLM2 used the total CAT score and the square term of total CAT score as the explanatory variable. OLS3 and GLM3 used the backward stepwise selected CAT questions as explanatory variables. Five selected questions for OLS3 and GLM3 are Q3, Q4, Q5, Q6, Q8
