Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The present study investigated the performance of four multiple regression techniques: stepwise, forward, backward and Maximizing Weight Validity (MWV) in predicting the success of freshman students, as measured by Freshman GPA, in the college of science at Yarmouk University, Irbid-Jordan, from the grades of five academic subjects selected by an exploratory analysis from eight available subjects taken from the General Secondary Education Certificate Examination (GSECE). The shrinkage in the squared validity coefficient (R('2)) was compared with the corresponding values calculated from the three mathematical shrinkage formulas (Wherry, Lord-Nicholson and Stein-Darlington). The original eight variables were numerically reduced by three ...
