The objective of this study has been to determine whether any relationship exists between the criteria on which students are selected for admission to the University and the subsequent achievement of the students. Data were assembled on 841 students in the Class of 1950 and 615 students in the Class of 1951. listings included the students' high school grade averages, their high school principals' ratings, their quartile rank in high school classes, and their scores on the American Council on Education Psychological Examination. The college grade point averages of all students were also tabulated, and distributions were prepared to show the relationship of each predictor to the students' first-year experience and to their four-year college average. Comparisons were also made of each of the predictors as they applied in each college of the University.
