Abstract

Measures were made of attitudes toward certain matters relating to college activities (Y), study habits (S) as measured by pencil and paper tests, background, (C) as measured by the Iowa State College Cultural Inventory, and the grade-point-average of 87 students (G). Correlations were computed to determine the relative importance of the factors studied. The reliability of the grades was sufficient to insure the significance of results. It is shown by multiple correlation technique that the most important item measured for prognosticating grades is interest (Y). The second important item was background (C), which is somewhat related to intelligence, and study habits (S) were least important.
