Summary

In the fall of 1961, the Bureau of Educational Studies and Testing developed a procedure for predicting the first semester grade point average (GPA) of entering freshmen at Indiana University from a combination of their CEEB Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores and their high school ranks. This procedure was updated in 1965. The 1969 revision is reported in this monograph. Using first semester GPA as the criterion to be predicted, the SAT scores -- Verbal, Mathematics and Sum (Verbal and Mathematics) were maximally weighted with high school rank to produce the most accurate prediction. This analysis was conducted separately for men and women. Predicted grade point averages were classified in four categories and were used in developing the GPA probability tables. (AF)
