Indiana Studies in Prediction. Number 13. Predicting Success for Indiana University Freshmen Using the CEEB Achievement Tests, the CEEB Scholastic Aptitude Test, and High School Rank.
Pugh, Richard C.; And Others
The primary aim of this study was to determine whether College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) Achievement Test results provide additional information for the prediction of academic success beyond the normal data accumulated. The study presents two types of evidence: (1) a prediction of first semester grade point averages (GPA), and (2) a prediction of grades obtained in 29 selected courses which typically carry high freshmen enrollments. Data was obtained from freshmen who entered Indiana University in the fall semester of 1968. Results showed that not all of the tests were useful in predicting course marks. The mixed results obtained in this study suggest a thoughtful review of the practice of requiring CEEB Achievement Tests for admission to the University. In many instances very little significant prediction information is added to that already available from scholastic aptitude test results and high school rank. (Author/KJ)
