Summary

This study was designed to: (1) compare the contribution of various categories of biographical data (biodata) to the differentiation of college attenders and nonattenders, and (2) to assess the accuracy of biodata as a predictor of collete attendance. Subjects consisted of 20,367 high school senior males who participated in the 1960 data collection phase of Project TALENT and who responded to a 1961 follow-up questionnaire. Biodata obtained from a 394-item inventory were categorized into 14 areas. The study revealed that biodata were potent and pervasive predictors of college attendance, predictors that were not just concomitants of academic aptitude. (Author/EK)
