The purpose of this study is to find what factors, if any, in physical development, habits, medical history, medical examination, and physical efficiency are of significance in relation to scholastic standing. It is based on the records of two groups of 1925-1926 male freshmen. The first group was composed of those men receiving the highest grade-point averages in the entire class of nearly 700. The other group was composed of those men in the class receiving the lowest grade-point averages during the same period. The group receiving high averages numbered fifty-two. The group receiving low averages numbered fifty-four. As selected, these groups represented the scholastic extremes of their class.
