Standardized Tests as Predictors of Academic Performance: Implications on the MCLS Testing Program

Abstract

As part of its periodic testing program evaluation and to support the institutional viability of Miriam College, the Lower School Guidance Center examined the predictive value of the School Readiness Test (SRT) as its admissions tool in terms of its relationship with the Grade 1 academic performance. Likewise, the study looked into the predictive value of the English and Mathematics pre-test for Grade 1 which is administered through an outsourced partner of the school. Adopting a longitudinal predictive research design, this study examined changes on the quantitative data taken from the population over time. The data was analyzed using multiple linear regression at .05 significance level. Results indicate that there is a correlation between the standardized test scores and the participants’ general academic average. Furthermore, SRT and achievement tests are predictive of academic performance. Implications on the school testing program were discussed and exploring locally developed assessment tools was recommended.
