This study reports the results of the cluster analysis and a study of the instruments used in the Comparative Guidance Placement Program as they function in each of 20 curricular group clusters. The battery of tests and questionnaires were administered to approximately 6,000 students enrolled in more than 50 different programs within 23 vocational-technical schools in Georgia. Normative data were obtained on approximately 2,004 students which constituted a sufficient size to permit analysis in terms of the validity of the battery against grade point average. The curricular cluster groups were selected on the basis of number of students, that is, groups with a minimum of 50 students. The overall correlation across all 20 curricular groups for the 44 predictors was .457, while the corresponding correlation for the five best predictors was .411. Examination of the data indicates that differential prediction is possible when using the comparative guidance and placement battery. (CH)
