The prediction of college success has been studied from a number of different angles. The rank in high school graduating class is generally considered to have the highest single predictive value. Intelligence was considered important when combined with other factors. Tests of various kinds have been used extensively. The general situation is suggested by Adams (1). He says that the relative quality of achievement during the freshman year in college is best predicted from relative high school achievement, than from the college freshman aptitude test standing, and the I. Q. in the later elementary grades. Thus various factors have been used to determine college success according to past researches.
