The First Year Seminar as a Predictor of Academic Achievement and Persistence.
Hyers, Albert D.; Joslin, Monica Neset
Journal of the Freshman Year Experience & Students in Transition, v10 n1 p7-30 1998
A study at a small liberal arts college found grades earned in a required, interdisciplinary freshman year seminar (FYS) were better predictors of academic achievement and persistence than high school rank, Scholastic Assessment Test scores. FYS grades were found a useful substitute for cognitive and noncognitive variables that correlate with retention but are difficult to obtain routinely. (Author/MSE)
