Predicting Criteria Other Than Grades for Community Colleges.
Lunneborg, Patricia W.
Research indicates the necessity for predictive criteria other than grades to aid the community college student in making decisions concerning career, and goals. Three successive studies were conducted which demonstrate that unless there is a close correspondence between predictors and criteria, the available tests are able to predict only graded success. As a result a search is being made for criteria and predictors which will be useful in attaining foreknowledge of personal growth and satisfaction with the college experience. References are included. (PR)
