Predicting Graduate Business Grades with the Admission Test for Graduate Study in Business. Abstracts and Reviews of Research in Higher Education No. 14.
Little information is available concerning the validity of the Admission Test for Graduate Study in Business as a predictor of grades in graduate business programs, despite its use for 15 years. The overall pattern of data suggests that the ATGSB is not a strong predictor of graduate business GPA. Four of the 8 studies reviewed showed low zero-order correlations between ATGSB and graduate grades; 2 showed low moderate multiple correlations when ATGSB was combined with undergraduate GPA as a predictor; 1 reported no significant relationships; and 1 reported high ATGSB Q and V scores were more often associated with high graduate grades than with low ones, but that students with middle range ATGSB V scores received even higher graduate grades than did students with high ATGSB scores.
