Higher Education Officials: High School GPA Better Success Predictor Than Standardized Tests

The AP (3/24, Edwards) reports that higher education officials say that standardized test scores aren’t “the best predictor of college success,” but instead “a student’s high school grade point average” is. The piece notes that Dr. Thomas Calhoun of the University of North Alabama “said research indicates a student’s performance in high school tracks better with that student’s college performance.”
