The purpose of this study was to determine whether or not a relationship exists between Freshman speed and comprehension in reading and fourth year engineering matriculation over and above the contribution to be expected from the American Council on Education Psychological Examination (ACE). In other words, does a reading test contribute something to the prediction of engineering success not already found in the ACE?
