Abstract

This study assesses the predictive validity of GRE scores and prior grade point average on multiple measures of academic performance (i.e., final grade point average, low grades, and incompletes) using two samples of criminal justice graduate students from Michigan State University. We find that a composite measure including GRE scores and prior grade point average is a fairly robust predictor of academic performance among MS and doctoral students. The results provide empirical support for using such a composite measure during the applicant screening process.
