The first year of college
grade point average prediction program you are about to use is
entirely free. By using this program, you implicitly agree with
the terms and conditions outlined below. This document may be
modified at any time and any changes become effective immediately.
1. This service is intended
for informational and educational purposes only. The services
are offered without any expressed or implied warranties whatsoever.
2. Because this service
is free, Dr. Cullari may not always be able to respond to any
problems, questions or e-mails. Dr. Cullari will try to respond
to these as time permits.
3. All psychological assessment
techniques involve indirect measurement, and thus some amount
of error is unavoidable. For example, if you come from a very
competitive high school (where many students get high grades),
the formula will underestimate your first year gpa. Also, all
psychological tests are just snapshots of the way you are when
you answer the questions on the test. If you change, your future
results may change as well. Remember that your answers must be honest
in order for the test to be accurate. In any event, the results
of this test should not be used by itself to make any significant
decisions in your life or influence your decision to attend or
not attend college.
4. The ASES questionnaire
and the contents of the following web pages are copyright protected.
Any copyright infrigement and/or attempt to use this test or test
formula or any attempt of plagiarism shall be prosecuted to the
full extent of the law. This assessment (ASES) or any related

This assessment is designed
to be used by students who currently live and attend high school
in the United States, and will probably not be accurate for
students in other countries.
Students who use this test
should be current high school juniors, seniors or recent graduates
and should have already taken the Scholastic Apptitude Test (SAT). This questionnaire
was not validated with adults over the age of 18, and therefore may
be inaccurate with this age group. Students who are already attending
college should not complete this assessment.
Before you go on, make sure
you have the following information:
1. Your current or graduation
high school rank. For example, you graduated 10th highest out
of a class of 100. You will need both of these numbers. These
may appear on your final report card. If you do not know your
rank, you can ask your high school guidance counselor.
2. Your latest SAT verbal
and math scores.
If you do not have one or
either of these, you can still complete the ASES questionnaire
and get a prediction, but it may not be as accurate.
Please do not take this
assessment more than once unless you made an error on a previous
In order to come up with
the most accurate prediction, you must answer every question and
answer as honestly as possible. Your test results will be held
strictly confidential and will not be shared with any other
person, agency or educational institution.
On a voluntary basis, at
the end of your first year in college, I may ask you to send me
your predicted and actual first year GPA (along with your high
school rank and SAT scores).
The ASES was valided on
approximately 2000 male and female United States college students.
