A Validity Study of Admission Criteria for Masters Students in a Reading Program.
Heritage, John O.
This study investigated the predictive validity of the admission criteria for masters students in reading: undergraduate grade point average (GPA), Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores, undergraduate college quality, and age. Data were gathered for 94 former masters students at Rutgers University, including 53 who had obtained the M.Ed. and 41 who had dropped out. The graduated and not-graduated groups differed significantly only on the GRE-Verbal. For the graduated group, GPA and age yielded significant correlations with the time-to-degree criterion. The results from this study were interpreted as being consistent with those of other predictive studies in education. (Author/AA)
