A study examined the academic success and retention of 442 first-year, African-American college students at a historically Black, private, liberal arts college. During their first week on campus, students were surveyed about their preparation and readiness for college. Stepwise regression analysis found that both cognitive and noncognitive variables predicted academic success. (Author/MSE)
