Through 2 related studies, we investigated the relation between ethnic identity, epistemological development, and achievement among students of color. Findings suggest that the three variables are related, with ethnic identity and epistemological development together contributing to explaining variance in college GPA almost as well as a combination of SAT score and high school grade point average. Findings regarding the two developmental processes are summarized. (Contains 3 tables.)
