Policy #3.14.1-Rank in Class - Philosophy

PHILOSOPHY                                                                                               3.14.1


 

            Rank-in-class is one measure of industry and intellectual ability, two basic ingredients for success in college academic work. It does not measure all the important human assets; for example, it says nothing about character or personality, manual dexterity, social intelligence or practical intelligence, imagination, maturity, etc. For this reason, the recommendations made are based on what marks are the best predictors of college academic success. This does not mean that all courses in the areas of business, art, TV Production and music are less difficult than some ranked higher, but these are poorer predictors of college academic success. Colleges want rank-in-class based on these predictors.
