THE "ACADEMIC" VS. THE "TOTAL" HIGH SCHOOL AVERAGE--A RE-EXAMINATION.
GELSO, CHARLES J.; KLOCK, JOSEPH A.
THE "ACADEMIC" HIGH SCHOOL GRADE AVERAGES OF APPLICANTS TO SOUTH GEORGIA COLLEGE IN THE FALL OF 1964 (526) AND THE FALL OF 1965 (711) WERE COMPARED WITH THEIR TOTAL GRADE AVERAGES. THE MEAN TOTAL GRADE AVERAGE OF THE 1964 GROUP WAS SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THE MEAN ACADEMIC AVERAGE. IN 1965, WHEN THE COLLEGE REMOVED SUCH COURSES AS MUSIC FROM THE LIST OF ACADEMIC COURSES, THE DIFFERENCE INCREASED. IN GENERAL, AS STUDENTS ACADEMIC GRADE AVERAGES INCREASED, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACADEMIC AND TOTAL GRADE AVERAGES DECREASED. DIFFERENCES IN THE TWO TYPES OF AVERAGES ARE ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT IN INSTITUTIONS WITH RELATIVELY LOW ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS, AND THE RELATIONSHIP SHOULD BE CAREFULLY EXAMINED WHEN THE STANDARDS FOR ADMISSION ARE CHANGED.
