Applicability of ACT Scores to the Prediction of Success in Business, Mathematics, and Science Courses at Rhode Island Junior College.
Decker, Dwight F.; And Others
To determine whether a relationship existed between ACT composite scores and academic success in courses in Accounting I, Quantitative Business Analysis I, and Physical Science at Rhode Island Junior College, random samples of ACT scores of about 70 students in each course were studied. To establish predictability, correlation techniques were used. Results of the study showed Pearson-Product-Moment correlation coefficients of 0.47 for Accounting I, 0.27 for Physical Science, and 0.24 for Quantitative Business Analysis I. Using statistical analysis, the relationships were found to be moderate, low, and nil, respectively. Tables and figures present the study data. Three appendixes are included, as follows: A. Physical Science Data, B. Quantitative Business Analysis I Data, and C. Accounting I Data. (DB)
