Inherent in the democratic ideal of free public education comes the realization that as a number of youth receiving education increases, the greater the demand for secondary education, and finally, the enlarged desire for additional college training. As increasing numbers of these young people seek entrance into our institutions of higher learning, and as these institutions become more selective in their admission policies, it becomes imperative that trained guidance personnel acquaint themselves more thoroughly with the various predictive devices available to predict college success with some degree of precision. This study was conducted with the hope of interpreting some of the local high school data in order to increase this predictive accuracy, both for the investigator and other counselors confronted with a similar problem.
