A COMPARISON OF TERMINAL WITH COLLEGE PARALLEL FEMALES AT GEORGIA SOUTHWESTERN COLLEGE.
GLADNEY, MARILYN B.
DATA FOR 69 FEMALE TERMINAL-OCCUPATIONAL STUDENTS ENDING THEIR FRESHMAN YEARS IN 1963 AND 1964 ARE ANALYZED AND COMPARED WITH 81 REGULAR FEMALE STUDENTS DURING THE SAME PERIOD. PREDICTION OF FRESHMAN AVERAGE GRADE (PFAG) CAN BE MADE ON THE BASIS OF COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION BOARD SCORES (SAT V AND SAT M) AND HIGH SCHOOL AVERAGE FOR REGULAR AND TERMINAL APPLICANTS WITH STANDARD ERRORS OF ESTIMATE OF .42 AND .43 AND MULTIPLE CORRELATIONS OF .73 AND .75, RESPECTIVELY. ANALYSIS OF COVARIANCE INDICATES THAT MALES, REGULAR FEMALES, AND TERMINAL FEMALES AT THE COLLEGE COULD BE COMBINED AND A SINGLE PREDICTION EQUATION USED FOR PFAG. A DERIVATIVE INTEGRAL EQUATION IS MORE EASILY COMPUTED AND ACCURATE WITHIN .2 GRADE POINTS OF THE PREDICTION EQUATION. A PROCEDURE FOR SETTING PFAG CUTOFF SCORES IS DEMONSTRATED, FOLLOWED BY A YIELD TABLE RESULTING FROM THE USE OF VARIOUS PFAG CUTTING SCORES FOR GEORGIA SOUTHWESTERN APPLICANTS. (AL)
