An attempt to use the California Psychological Inventory to predict the academic grades of students in 3 military courses: Neuropsychiatric, Clinical Psychology, and Social Work Procedures. The data indicated that a combination of the Achievement via Independence scale of the California Psychological Inventory and the General Technical score from the Army Classification Battery, makes an effective instrument for screening students for admittance to these courses. The predicted criterion scores, obtaned from 2 multiple prediction equations, were correlated with the academic grades achieved by students in 2 samples (N = 98; N = 64). The obtained r's were .610 and .600 (p < .01). Cross-validation correlations were obtained with 2 new samples (N = 35; N = 33). The obtained r's were .631 and .558 (p < .01).
