Specified as the same for everyone in the sample). 1 also implies that there is considerable error associated with that prediction, since the actual data points do not all rest on the predicted regression line. Some errors lie above the regression line and some below. The principle of least squares states that the correct regression line is the one that best fits the data points, that is, the line that represents the maximum correlation between the observed and predicted scores for y. Model fit is assessed by summing the squared distances of each observed value from the predicted value that rests on the regression line.
