valeur attendue / valeur espérée


Explanation:
Termium donne une définition : valeur attendue Source CORRECT, FÉM

valeur espérée Source CORRECT, FÉM

DEF – Valeur actualisée nette que l'on
compte retirer d'un projet d'investissement.
Cette valeur correspond à la moyenne de
toutes les valeurs actualisées nettes
possibles de l'investissement projeté,
établie à partir de la distribution des
probabilités de réalisation. Source

On ne peut pas traduire par valeur moyenne

le total pondéré de tous les résultats possibles, chaque résultat étant pondéré par la probabilité de chaque occurrence

valeur attendue


Explanation:
Il me semble que "valeur attendue" correspond au contexte puisque c'est un objectif.
