Title:Noncognitive assessment and college success: The case of the Gates Millennium Scholars
Organization:Insitute for Higher Education Policy
Short Description:Noncognitive measures evaluate such characteristics as adjustment, motivation, and student perceptions, which are not measurable using typical standardized tests (Sedlacek 2005). These measures are viewed as strong predictors of success for students who are not traditionally represented in higher education.
Annotation:Noncognitive measures evaluate such characteristics as adjustment, motivation, and student perceptions, which are not measurable using typical standardized tests (Sedlacek 2005). These measures are viewed as strong predictors of success for students who are not traditionally represented in higher education. These students often need to work during high school, which restricts time spent on academic and extracurricular pursuits, and they may also have parents with lower levels of education and less involvement in their children’s educational plans. Noncognitive assessment helps account for the different experiences of such students rather than treating all students as though they come from similar environments.
