A Study of Predictors of National Teachers Examination Scores at a Predominantly Black Institution. AIR Forum 1979 Paper.
Pratt, Linda K.; And Others
The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and undergraduate grade point average were examined as possible predictors of scores on the National Teacher Examination (NTE). The study population consisted of 166 education major graduates from North Carolina Central University (NCCU), a predominantly black institution, over a two-year period. The data on SAT scores, grade point averages, and NTE scores were analyzed using a multiple regression analysis. The SAT verbal, SAT math, and grade point average were found to be significant predictors of NTE Common Examination scores for the NCCU students. The SAT verbal and grade point average were significant predictors of Area Examination scores in one area, while only the SAT verbal was significant in predicting scores in a second area. The findings indicate that SAT scores may be acceptable predictors of NTE Common Examination scores. (Author/SW)
