Pedersen, L. C. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
For a sample of 325 students enrolled in freshman chemistry, it was found that performance on the Verbal and Mathematics Sections of the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Examination Board exhibited low preditive validity in relation to a criterion of grades in freshmen chemistry.

Goldberg, Edith L.; Alliger, George M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
Metanalysis of 27 studies dealing with psychology students and the Graduate Record Examinations' (GRE) validity in predicting graduate school success was conducted. Overall, results do not indicate that the verbal and advanced psychology portions are valid predictors of grades, although the quantitative section predicts grades in quantitative…

Baron, Jonathan; Norman, M. Frank – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
The ability of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), average achievement test scores, and high school class rank to predict students' grades was examined for 3,816 undergraduate students entering the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia) in 1983 and 1984. Results suggest that the SAT makes a relatively small contribution to prediction. (SLD)

Graham, Lawrence D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1991
Selection criteria at a graduate school of business were examined in a study evaluating the predictive validity of the Graduate Management Admissions Test and the Miller Analogies Test for 203 recent graduates. Implications of the correlations between test results and grade point average for admission policy are discussed. (SLD)

Watkins, David – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
Learning processes, as measured by the Approaches to Studying Inventory, contributed to the prediction of freshman grades of 181 Australians. Other measures, such as college entrance examinations, locus of control, and student background characteristics, had less predictive ability. (GDC)

Wood, Peter H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The purpose of this study was to determine the difficulty level, the internal consistency, and the usefulness of the Nelson-Denny Reading Test (NDRT) as a predictor of college freshmen grades. Adding the NDRT to a prediction equation already containing high school grade point average did improve the prediction. (Author/BW)

Zeleznik, Carter; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The long-range predictive and differential validities of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) are investigated. Data from students (n=1284) who entered Jefferson Medical College from 1965 through 1974 were analyzed and supported the convergent and divergent validities of the SAT over an extended period of time.

Bridgeman, Brent – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The validity of scores from the Descriptive Tests of Mathematics Skills (DTMS) and the College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test--Mathematics (SAT-M) are compared. Results show the DTMS as a valid predictor of remedial level college course grades; the higher level OTMS was as accurate a predictor as the SAT-M for grades in advanced courses.…

McCornack, Robert L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The purpose of this study was to obtain additional evidence regarding bias in the validity of college grade predictions based on high school achievement and a scholastic aptitude test. Bias was examined in ethnic minority groups of Asian, Hispanic, Black, and American Indian college freshmen. (Author/PN)

Hogrebe, Mark C.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
This study examined, within the same sample, the effects of gender and race on the relationship between predictor measures of academic performance and subsequent first-year college performance for developmental studies students. (Author/PN)

Broadus, Robert N.; Elmore, Kenneth E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The validities of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and of undergraduate grade point averages (GPAs) in the prediction of graduate GPAs and a comprehensive examination were compared using a sample of 257 master's degree candidates in a school of library science. GRE verbal scores were the most valid predictors of success. (Author/PN)

Thornell, John G.; McCoy, Anthony – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
This study examines predictive validity of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) of academic success as measured by graduate grade point average (GGPA) of 582 students in selected academic disciplines. Results indicated considerable variability in validity coefficients for both different subgroups and subtests. (BS)

Milner, Marlene; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
Based on a sample of 145 graduate students in social work, results indicated that the Graduate Record Examination, as a primary basis for admission, is not a valid predictor of future performance in schools of social work. Moreover, its elimination does not produce a lower quality of student. (Author/BW)

Longenbecker, Sueann; Wood, Peter H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
Scores from the National Board Dental Hygiene Examination (NBDHE) served as the criterion variable in a comparison of the predictive validity of the Dental Hygiene Aptitude Tests (DHAT) and the ACT Assessment tests. The DHAT-Science and Verbal tests combined to produce the highest multiple correlation with NBDHE scores. (Author/DWH)
