Holistic Admissions: Predicting the Likelihood of Student Success  NEW


Though many colleges and universities were already expanding their current admissions approach beyond test scores, the disruption caused by COVID-19 has accelerated this need. It is imperative that institutions establish more precise instruments to identify those students who are likely to thrive at our institutions.

This book combines holistic theories with case studies to illustrate the complete picture of holistic admissions. It provides solid examples of how to implement consistent, legal, and manageable assessments to help in selecting successful students.
