Summary

Test batteries that predict first quarter freshman GPA's at an open-door predominantly black, urban, community college are reported in this study. Entering freshman performance on an academic aptitude test--College Qualification Tests (CQT), a reading skills test--Davis Reading Test (Davis), and a study habits and attitudes test--Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes (SSHA) was compared with their first-quarter GPA's. Results indicate that performance prediction was relatively greater for male students and that prediction validity was: (1) rather limited using the SSHA, (2) adequate for male students using the CQT and Davis tests, and (3) not significantly increased when the Davis and SSHA variables were added to the CQT variables in multiple correlations. The author finds not only placement and counseling uses--in comparable environments--for these and similar tests, but also suggests their use as a basis on which to restructure admission policies to permit enrollment of a significantly larger proportion of black students.
