NON-INTELLECTIVE PREDICTORS OF ACHIEVEMENT IN COLLEGE.
NICHOLS, ROBERT C.
SCALES FOR PREDICTING 1ST-YEAR COLLEGE GRADES AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACHIEVEMENT WERE DEVELOPED BY ITEM ANALYSIS FROM EACH OF FOUR ITEM POOLS--THE CALIFORNIA PSYCHOLOGICAL INVENTORY (CPI), THE VOCATIONAL PREFERENCE INVENTORY (VPI), AN ADJECTIVE CHECK LIST (ACL), AND AN EXPERIMENTAL OBJECTIVE BEHAVIOR INVENTORY (OBI)--USING A SAMPLE OF 1,013 NATIONAL MERIT FINALISTS. THE SCALES WERE CROSS-VALIDATED USING SAMPLES OF 179 MALE AND 138 FEMALE MERIT FINALISTS AND 201 MALE AND 218 FEMALE STUDENTS OF AVERAGE ABILITY. THE CPI AND OBI SCALES HAD HIGHER VALIDITIES THAN THOSE DEVELOPED FROM THE ACL AND VPI. THE BEST PREDICTOR OF COLLEGE GRADES WAS RANK IN HIGH SCHOOL CLASS (HSR) FOLLOWED BY THE NONINTELLECTIVE GRADE SCALES AND FINALLY BY APTITUDE TEST SCORES. THE NONINTELLECTIVE SCALES ADDED TO THE PREDICTION OF GRADES IN A REGRESSION EQUATION INCLUDING HSR AND TEST SCORES. THE BEST PREDICTORS OF EXTRACURRICULAR ACHIEVEMENT IN A REGRESSIVE EQUATION INCLUDED THE NONINTELLECTIVE SCALES. (AO)
