Why College Grade Point Average is Difficult to Predict
Goldman, Roy D.; Slaughter, Robert E.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 68, 1, 9-14, Feb 76
Many errors in the selection of college students are inversely related to the validity of the predictors employed. The generally weak validity with which grade point average (GPA) has been predicted may be a criterion problem rather than a predictor problem. GPA prediction is inferior to single-class grade prediction. (BJG)
