Description

The problem of academic failure has been of real concern to the administration and faculty at Syracuse University. The study at hand is concerned specifically with the problem in the College of Home Economics. Through a study of the data known about students at the time of entrance into the College, it was thought that a better basis for selection night be recommended for the admission of students to the College. Such questions as the following arise in the mind of the research worker:
1. Do the group psychological tests given at the University at the time of entrance give us one basis by which we may predict probable academic success or failure?
2. Are the known high school quartiles dependable bases for selection of successful students?
3. Are there factors in the family backgrounds of these students that.may be significant in their selection?
4. Does an objective personality test have validity as a predictive factor in the success of a student?
5. Do we have any anecdotal records that reveal significant differences in personal adjustment between successful and failed students?
6. Are we able to predict the probable success of failed students upon readmission?
7. Do we have any combination of factors that may be significant in predicting the probable success of a student?
