An Index and Procedure for Readmitting the Academically Dismissed Student.
Bierbaum, Gretchen A.; Planisek, R. J.
An index and procedure were sought which would enable university officials to establish the probable academic success of each student seeking readmission after academic dismissal. A 2.20 critical GPA index and procedure for readmitting students was empirically derived from the performance of 1,460 readmitted students. The critical index technique was found to be a valuable research procedure which could be used to reflect past policy and guide current decisions. The technique is independent of units, i.e., quarter or semester hours and can be used by individuals with limited knowledge of mathematical skills. Further, it can facilitate the development of hypotheses when used in conjunction with other variables. (Author)
