Abstract : A multiple regression equation predicting Intern Training Center grade point average was developed using a sample of sixty-two trainees from the Intern Training Center at Red River Army Depot. Possible predictor variables were taken as age, number of dependents, undergraduate college grades, Graduate Records Examination scores, and type of undergraduate college degree. Square terms and cross product terms were also considered. Using a stepwise procedure a final equation using seven independent variables and explaining 54 per cent of the variance in the predicted variable was obtained. The equation was also found to discriminate effectively between above average performers and below average performers. (Author)
