The influence of college training upon success after college as measured by judges' estimates

The influence of college training upon success after college as measured by judges' estimates


The success of 582 graduates (1928) of Pennsylvania State College was judged by 67 judges, who were instructed to indicate those most successful and those least successful. Tetrachoric correlations between success and other factors such as college grade-point averages, participation in athletics, etc., were obtained. The correlations of success with 13 such factors, and all the intercorrelations, are presented. College grade-point average was found to be the most significant of all the items tested in relation to success when all the other items were held constant by the partial correlation technique ( = .516).
