Predictive Modeling of the Academic Performance of USAF Academy Preparatory School Graduates at the USAF Academy.
Anderson, Kenneth R.
This study used linear models developed by stepwise multiple regression to examine the relationship between performance at the United States Air Force Academy Preparatory School and subsequent grade point average (GPA) at the USAF Academy. Data collected on Prep School graduates in the Academy classes of '71 through '77 who had completed at least their first year at the Academy provided potentially significant quantitative factors for predicting Academy GPA. The proposed Prep School percentage grading method appears promising with regard to its ability to predict Academy GPA. (Author)
