Abstract

This study was undertaken in order to find out to what extent the achievement of a student in college Physics was similar to his achievement in high school Physics. The high school grades for the entire course of Physics were used in comparison to the first semester grades in college Physics. The data covers the records of students who entered college during a period of three years. The total number of students considered was one hundred twenty-one. With this group the formula proposed by Karl Pearson showed the coefficient of correlation to be 0.62. This is considered quite a marked correlation.
