Prediction of Academic Success for Mature Students.
Seltzer, Robert A.
Differences in the prediction of academic achievement between traditional and older undergraduate students are examined. Central tendency and correlational statistics were used to analyze the independent variables using college grade-point average as the dependent variable. Data were analyzed separately for freshmen and transfer students as well as for males and females. Results include the following: older students exhibit higher relative academic achievement; there are differences in pattern and degree of predictability of these students; and these differences appear to be sex related. These findings show the need to evaluate predictive criteria for the increasing numbers of mature students. (Author/LBH)
