Abstract

Richardson and Sullivan studied traditional-age students enrolled at a small, private liberal arts college in New England. The authors identify the motivation-related factors that were the strongest predictors of first-year grade point average, and they suggest that examination of these variables can lead to better evaluation of academically underprepared students and increased persistence.
