Of particular concern is the attrition rate of black students relative to whites.

    Objective: To investigate preadmission criteria, Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores, and high school grade point average (HSGPA) and to determine the ability of those criteria to predict the college grade point average (CGPA) of graduates from programs in athletic training and 5 . Results of the logistic regression model of the odds of graduation are shown in Table 3; none of the admissions criteria was a significant predictor of graduation, and only gender was marginally associated, suggesting that women were times as likely to graduate as men.

Among the findings: There was "a strong relationship" between GPA in ninth and 11th grades, with most students having roughly the same grades in both years.
