Abstract: This study attempts to assess the predictive validity of some selected variables on students past experience, identification, parental economic and educational backgrounds and college facilities. It investigates the most dominant predictors of the first year first semester average score of students at Kotebe College of Teacher Education. Subjects of the study consist of 102 randomly selected freshman students from the Natural and Social Science students who were admitted to the college in the year 1998/99. Preliminary analysis is carried out through Chi-square tests and correlation analysis. The combined effect of the variables is analyzed using stepwise regression analysis. The results show that high school overall average score, age, sex, ESLCE mathematics grade, region high school attended and mother's education are significant predictors of first year first semester average score. Implications are discussed and suggestions are given.
