Factors Related to Success in Completing a Master's Degree at Stout State University 1960-1968.
Swanson, Robert S.; And Others
The Graduate College at Stout State University commonly employs two criteria in deciding which applicants should be permitted to enroll for graduate degree programs: cumulative undergraduate grade-point average and experience. It was the purpose of this study to determine the effectiveness of these two criteria in predicting the likelihood of completing the master's degree program at Stout State University. To this purpose, this report: (1) presents a general description of the graduate students enrolled at SSU over the period 1960-68 in terms of undergraduate GPA, experience, classification, major field, summer and regular session enrollment, and degree status; (2) attempts to determine the relationship between SSU graduate students' success in obtaining a master's degree and their undergraduate GPA's; and (3) attempts to determine the relationship between SSU graduate students' success in obtaining a master's degree, and the number of years that elapsed between completion of their bachelor's degrees and entrance into graduate degree programs at Stout.
