Summary
U.S. Naval Officers reporting to the Naval Postgraduate School as students are required to take the graduate record examination (GRE). An analysis of the GRE scores obtained to date and of other factors, such as age, sex, years since receiving a baccalaureate degree, and Academic Profile Code (APC) scores was performed. The analysis was based on data for approximately 320 students who have completed at least three quarters at NPS. Two measures of student academic performance were considered: graduate grade point average and total grade point average. The analyses performed are not exhaustive; other analyses could well provide further insights and other variables might be included in future analyses. Additionally, the sample size of tested students who have completed several quarters of work at NPS will grow. Regression analysis was used to investigate which components of the GRE and APC scores (together with age and years since graduation) are important in predicting academic performance as measured by grade point averages (GPA's). In addition, several multivariate analysis methods were used in an attempt to find predictors of marginal academic performance (GPA's less than 3.0)
