EPPS Patterns and Academic Achievement in Counseling Clients.
Lunneborg, Patricia W.
In two college counseling client samples, 29 two-need Edwards Personal Preference Scale (EPPS) patterns were found to occur frequently, 13 involving high achievement. The prediction of college grades in these two samples was studied utilizing these EPPS patterns, a set of traditional aptitude/achievement measures, and patterns combined with traditional measures. Personality patterns did not improve prediction from aptitude and achievement variables in the weight determination sample and in cross-validation actually cancelled out predictability from traditional measures. Prediction of college grades from high school grades and aptitude tests was, on the other hand, both accurate and consistent. (Author)
