College Student Inventory

Dropout Proneness

Measures student’s overall inclination to drop out of school before finishing a degree

Students with high scores on dropout proneness should be considered as having a pattern of intellectual and motivational traits that is loosely associated with dropping out, but which may or may not lead to actual dropout in any given case

Predicted Academic Difficulty

  • Designed to predict who is most likely to have low grades in college

Summary Scales

  • High scores on dropout proneness, academic difficulty, and educational stress scales all indicate high need

  • High scores on receptivity indicate a strong desire for help

  • The general pattern is for high scores to imply the advisability of intervention

  • Because of their susceptibility to misinterpretation, summary scores should not be discussed with students
