Summary

This study predicted student achievement in college after comprehensive assessment of student achievement and potential in high school. The student sample of 2,792 sophomores and 1,095 freshmen was obtained from a follow-up of students who participated in the American college survey in 1964 and 1965, and who had taken the American college testing battery for admission to college. Predictors included scores on act tests, high school grades, and scores on a checklist of extracurricular achievement. Criteria included college grades, scores on 12 scales measuring extracurricular achievement in college, and scores on a scale assessing recognition for academic accomplishment. Results indicate that non-academic accomplishment can be assessed with moderate reliability. Both academic and non-academic accomplishment can be predicted to a useful degree. Non-academic accomplishment is largely independent of academic potential and achievement. This study indicates that colleges should find students who are outstanding performers outside the classroom as well as those who will do well in the classroom. This is act research report no. 13, June, 1966. (sk)
