Impact of Optional
This project is a longitudinal investigation of the effects of test-optional admissions policy implementation on admission application volume, admissions selectivity, and the composition of the student body.

Predicting Success
This project examines the predictive validity of a measure of motivational-developmental dimensions in college admissions. Outcomes of interest include academic performance (i.e., cumulative undergraduate GPA) and degree completion.

Attributions of Success and Failure
This project examines the predictive validity of a measure of college admissions applicants’ attributions of success and failure. Outcomes of interest include academic performance (i.e., cumulative undergraduate GPA) and degree completion.
