Summary

Factors used to identify potential dropouts among incoming seventh-graders are presented. These include socioeconomic status determined from the occupation of the father and the area of residence, intelligence test scores obtained from cumulative records, school achievement averaged from fifth- and sixth-grade marks, reading achievement based on sixth-grade reading grade placement, and school and social adjustment determined from scores on a rating sheet grading aggressive and withdrawal tendencies. Results from the above factors are tallied on a roster worksheet and totals of factor scores are made. In each of these factors, the "1" score is desirable and the "5" score is critical. A distribution of these scores are made with consideration given to missing scores. Cutoff points are established for first, second, and third priority dropout-prone students. Cases of retardation and overage are given consideration in the placement of a student in either first or second priority dropout-prone categories. Such subjective information as teacher comments on confidential information blanks is also considered in cases where the point score is on the borderline. The percentages of seventh-grade students identified in each category are listed.
