Intelligence Tests as Predictors of Performance in General Psychology.
Johnson, Granville B.
Over the past nine years 462 sophomore college students in 23 classes in General Psychology were administered at least one test of intelligence. Coefficients of correlation were computed between these scores and the scores on author-made objective subject matter tests ("Tests") and the performance on "Non-tests" (experiments, reviews, observations, term paper). The correlations between intelligence and "Tests" ranged from .35 to .39 while those between intelligence and "Non-tests" were insignificant. A correlation of .39 between "Tests" and "Non-tests" possibly indicates a general "academic factor." (Author)
