Abstract

This paper reports the preliminary results of an attempt to predict scholastic success on the basis of certain informational data. In connection with another investigation all freshmen at the University of Iowa were asked twenty-six questions concerning their high school grades, high school activities, size of graduating class, population of home town, mothers' and fathers' education, certain home influences, etc. The answers to these questions were wholly objective, being made by checking the appropriate answer. These answers were scored and an actual prediction of scholastic success was made.
