Summary

Whether a set of predictor variables could be identified from pre-enrollment and post-enrollment data that would differentiate students who advance to a major in engineering from those who do not was studied with students at Auburn University, Alabama. Also studied was whether predictors could be isolated that would identify students likely to graduate with another major and whether any relationship exists between the grades earned by students and 15 courses selected from the pre-engineering curriculum. Participants were 868 freshmen who entered as pre-engineering students over the course of 7 years. Variables used were high school total grade index, high school mathematics grade index, high school science grade index, high school humanities grade index, and first quarter college grade point average. Analyses indicated that first quarter college grade point average was a significant indicator in the prediction of success in higher education. In addition, high school grade indices also predict at a high rate. (Contains 30 references.) (SLD)
