I have a GLM where I'm predicting a proportion response (# correct items / total # of quiz items). The common recommendation in this case is to assume a binomial distribution and use a logit link. For example: What are the issues with using percentage outcome in linear regression? and Regression for an outcome (ratio or fraction) between 0 and 1
Some others in my department (varying levels of statistical knowledge) disagree, or agree but suggest the use of Poisson or a linear model for simplicity.
In addressing their concerns, and also anticipating reviewer responses to the analysis, I'm wondering if there are any references (e.g. journal articles) that I could cite that suggest/recommend binomial GLM for this type of outcome variable?
