dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate what variables best predict academic achievement in high school. Specifically, this study analyzed the separate and combined relationship of placement test scores, previous grades, and teacher recommendations to academic success in high school. Catholic high schools within the Diocese of Oakland have ninth grade admissions criteria which include one or more of the variables used in this study. While the intent and application of the admissions criteria varied from school to school, the overriding demand on each criteria was to indicate subsequent academic performance. The aim of this study was to determine the value of the selected admissions criteria as predictors of future academic success in high school. en_US
