Summary

This study assessed whether or not the American College Test (ACT) is a good predictor of college success for students at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights (Illinois) for students entering as freshmen in the fall semesters of 1988, 1989, 1990, and 1991. The total population of 477 included 188 males and 289 females. ACT scores, high school grade point average (GPA), college GPA for the first two semesters, course credits attempted and earned, and other related data were taken from school records for 118 students in 1988, 117 students in 1989, 132 students in 1990, and 110 students in 1991. College GPA can be reasonably predicted from the ACT Composite range, and a breakdown of the six defined ACT ranges shows a distinct relationship between ACT success and success in college. This correlation is higher for females than for males. The correlation between high school GPA and college GPA is even higher than that between ACT scores and college GPA. High school GPA may be a more reliable predictor of college success than ACT composite scores. Twenty-six references are included. (SLD)
