Which applicants should be admitted to a technical training program? If admitted, in which academic areas might the student experience difficulty? These are questions which concern admissions officers and advisors of students almost daily. On what predictors should the decision to admit or not admit be based? Is is possible to foresee academic weaknesses? The objective of this research was to identify those quantifiable predictors which may be used to estimate a student's academic performance and certain academic deficiencies in the Agricultural Production Program at Michigan State University.
