The relationship between GRE scores and performance on the Standard Principal Examination for the Certification of Educators in Texas (ExCET)ERIC, ED (2002)
Graduate programs in Educational Administration use a variety of screening strategies, including the Graduate Records Examination (GRE) when selecting and admitting students. In order to earn Standard Principal Certification in Texas, an Educational Administration candidate, in addition to completing a graduate program, must also pass the Standard Principal Examination for the Certification of Teachers in Texas (ExCET). This study examined the correlation between a students GRE score and the students ExCET score. Scores of 30 students from 1 university and 23 from another were used. The data clearly demonstrate a correlation between the GRE and ExCET scores. A scatterplot was derived to show this correlation, and a least square regression line was used to derive a linear equation for predicting Standard Principal ExCET score using the GRE score.
