EARLY INDICATIONS OF ACADEMIC TALENTS, REPORT OF CLASS GRADUATING IN JUNE 1964.
Philadelphia Public Schools, PA.
THE AIM WAS TO DETERMINE THE ACCURACY OF TEST SCORES IN PREDICTING FUTURE ACHIEVEMENT. A SOMEWHAT SHARPER AGREEMENT WAS FOUND BETWEEN EARLY PREDICTIVE FACTORS AND SCHOOL MARKS IN GRADE 9 THAN BETWEEN THESE FACTORS AND SCHOOL MARKS IN GRADES 11 AND 12. TWO REASONS FOR THIS DIFFERENCE ARE CITED. IF A PREDICTION FOR A PUPIL IS MADE AT GRADE 6, A CERTAIN DEGREE OF ABILITY CHANGE WILL TAKE PLACE BY GRADE 9, BUT A GREATER DEGREE OF ABILITY CHANGE WILL BE LIKELY BY GRADES 11 OR 12. SCHOOL MARKS IN GRADE 9 PROBABLY REFLECT THE STUDENTS' ABILITY, WHEREAS THE MARKS IN GRADES 11 AND 12 REFLECT TO A GREATER EXTENT THE PUPIL'S WILLINGNESS TO SPEND HIS TIME IN HOME-STUDY, A NECESSARY ACTIVITY FOR HIGH MARKS.
