Abstract

The authors administered a survey to first-year students designed to measure the non-cognitive predictors of (a) academic difficulty or academic success after the first year of college, and (b) attrition or retention in the second year. In both instances, the utilization of non-cognitive predictors was better than the utilization of either cognitive or demographic predictors alone.
