Forecasting Academic Success in Specific Colleges.
Hoyt, Donald P.
A statistical equation for predicting success at specific colleges was developed. High-school grade average and the American College Test Composite were two measures used in ratio to develop the general equation. The college profile scores developed by Astin and Holland were used to estimate mean equations for the institutions. The complete equation is applied to 1,000 four-year colleges, with examples of how an individual student's grades can be predicted at a specific institution. (NS)
