"Grade point average is just one of many factors that can predict student performance and long-term success," McAbee said.
Perhaps the most commonly used measure of past academic performance (and thus, potential for graduate school success) is the undergraduate grade point average (UGPA).
The selected variables (standardized reading proficiency test scores, undergraduate grade point average, gender, and ethnicity) were not predictors of teacher attrition (Greiner, Espinoza, & Smith, 2005).
Universities are ranked by a grade point average of the quality of research subjects and staff they have submitted, with the best performing at the top of the table.
The results revealed significant relationship between personal efficacy and outcome expectancy (r = .37, p = .00) but no significant relationship between personal efficacy and cumulative grade point average (r = -0.04, p = .50) and between outcome expectancy and cumulative grade point average (r = 0.014, p = .83) respectively.
The 17-year-old senior is also student body president and has maintained an enviable 3.98 grade point average while taking a difficult honors curriculum.
Jones (1931) investigated this question in the 1930s and found a relationship between classroom attendance and grade point average. He found that the fewer absences a student had during the semester, the higher the student's grade point average.
Minimum grade point average of 3.5 overall on a 4.0 scale.
The student must have a grade point average of at least 2.5 or the equivalent; can attest to the need for financial aid; and can verify that graduation from the agricultural or biological degree program assures eligibility for the Professional Engineer licensing exam.
Eight dependent variables compared indicators of achievement for the three groups, including: number of students taking ACT, composite ACT scores, math ACT scores, English ACT scores, science ACT scores, number of special education placements, cumulative grade point average, and number of high school graduates.
Yet in just the past 10 years, the percent of students who took the SAT and had a grade point average in the A range jumped from 28 percent to 41 percent.
The authors found that seven of the nine academies had a positive, statistically significant effect on students' grade point average. Although the authors use grade point as one measure of accumulated human capital, it could be argued that it may not in fact reflect knowledge, especially when students are, for the most part, placed in separate classes.
