Relationship of Race, Academic and Nonacademic Information in Predicting the First-Year Success of Selected Admissions First-Year Students.
Bryson, Seymour; Smith, Ronald; Vineyard, George
Journal of the First-Year Experience & Students in Transition, v14 n1 p65-80 Spr 2002
Examined the relationship of race, traditional academic measures (high school GPA and rank, ACT scores), and nonacademic variables (measured by the Bryson Instrument for Noncognitive Assessment, or BINA) to the first-year grades of specially-admitted college students. Found that predictors of college success functioned differently for blacks and whites, and that nonacademic variables measured by BINA offered predictive information. (EV)
