ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which aims to determine the extent to which scholastic success in the Trumbull Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Warren, Ohio could be predicted from a range of tests administered to entering groups of students. The subjects were applicants accepted in the said college who have taken a series of tests prior to enrollment and those who had completed the first year. Results state that among the measures that are fairly effective in predicting success in the said school of nursing is the High School Point Average, the Hunt Arithmetic Test, the Iowa Silent Reading Test, and the Minnesota Clerical Test.
