Nonintellective Correlates of Grades, Persistence, and Academic Learning in College: The Published Literature through the Decade of the Sixties. Monograph 14.
Lenning, Oscar T.; And Others
Grades, persistence, and academic learning have traditionally been criteria for college success. However, as a result of the increased interest during the last decade in exploring the use of nonintellective variables for academic prediction, nonintellective instruments for this purpose have been developed that are more refined than those previously available. These dual concerns, with academic and nonacademic success in college, have led to the development of two publications, this monograph being the first. It is the result of a project on college success inaugurated in 1967 to develop an annotated bibliography on "nonintellective factors related to success in college." The primary purpose of the present monograph is to give the reader an overview of the research that has been done and to stimulate thought concerning college academic success. All types of issues are raised, commonly held assumptions are called into question, creative and unique approaches to research on college students are demonstrated. In addition to raising questions and to providing some new insights about college students and college effects, this monograph is intended to provide comprehensive source lists for each predictor area through extensive, albeit nonannotated, bibliographies.
