MetadataShow full item record
The primary objectives of this research project were the development of predictors of academic performance and satisfaction for Aeronautical Engineering students at the Naval Postgraduate School. The three basic types of data used to develope predictors were biographical (historical) , academic aptitude (Graduate Record Exam) , and individual interests (Strong Vocational Interest Blank) data. Several successful predictors of performance were developed but none of the predictors of satisfaction cross-validated at a statistically significant level. Additional work will be required to successfully predict student satisfaction.
