Prediction of Academic Success of Black Students: A Dilemma.
Sampel, David D.; Seymour, Warren R.
The current study was conducted to evaluate the academic performance of black students at the University of Missouri-Columbia as compared to a matched group of white students at the same institution. Predictors of academic success currently in use were investigated to see if they showed approximately the same validity for both black students and white students. Sex and class differences in both performance and prediction were examined. Significant differences were found in tested ability and grade point average. The value of predictors for black male students was found to be negligible. (Author)
