A Comparative Study of the College Entrance Examination Board Validity Study Service and Freshmen Cumulative Point Averages.
Bukowski, Joseph E.
The success with which freshmen cumulative point averages may be predicted from a combination of a student's high school rank, Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) score (Verbal) and SAT score (Mathematics) was investigated. A multiple regression formula developed by the College Entrance Examination Board was used to combine the three predictors into a cumulative point average. Product moment correlation coefficients were computed for both males and females using the three factors and high school rank alone by comparing predicted averages to actual averages for the academic year 1973-1974. Correlation coefficients ranged from a high of .74 to a low of .44. (Author/RC)
