Abstract:

This study used linear models developed by stepwise multiple regression to examine the relationship between performance at the USAF Academy Preparatory School and subsequent grade point average GPA at the USAF Academy. Data collected on Prep School graduates in the Academy classes of 71 through 77 who had completed at least their first year at the Academy provided potentially significant quantitative factors for predicting Academy GPA. The proposed Prep School percentage grading method appears promising with regard to its ability to predict Academy GPA.
