Correlates of Black and White University Student Grades Beyond the Freshman Year.
Horowitz, Joseph L; And Others
The freshman, sophomore and junior year grades of 126 black and 178 white freshmen entering the University of Maryland were used as criterion measures in this study on prediction of academic achievement as reflected in grades. Predictors included the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), high school grade point average (HSGPA), the California Psychological Inventory (CPI), the Holland Vocational Preference Inventory (VPI), items from the University Student Census (USC), a locally developed attitude and demographic inventory, and information from admissions files on high school extracurricular activities. It was found that the black student who had good high school grades, is conscientious, independent, self confident, is interested in social service jobs, and feels the University should take an active role in changing society will tend to get higher grades at the University. The SAT and high school grades were a consistent predictor across the 3 years for whites. (Author/HS)
