Predicting Success in a Graduate Psychology Program
Kordinak, S. Thomas; Kercher, Melanie; Harman, Marsha J.; Bruce, A. Jerry
Journal on Educational Psychology, v3 n1 p63-70 May-Jul 2009
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Tests and GRE advanced Psychology (PSYGRE) Test were correlated with several measures of success in our graduate program at Sam Houston State University including some specific courses. Significant correlations were obtained for several of these measures, but the PSYGRE provided incremental validity over and above all the GRE scales. However, the best prediction is accomplished with scales from both tests. The recommendation of the present report is that both tests should be used in the admission process and that each department should engage in validity studies related to their admission process.
