Garton, Bryan L.; Ball, Anna L.; Dyer, James E.
Journal of Agricultural Education, v43 n1 p46-56 2002
A study of two classes of agriculture freshmen (1997: n=245, 1998: 195) showed that the best predictor of performance for the 1997 cohort was high school grade point average (GPA) and ACT score; for the 1998 cohort, GPA alone. High school GPA was the only successful predictor of freshman GPA. Traditional admission criteria had limited predictive value for retention. (SK)
