Abstract or Description

An equation useful for predicting the performance of Ph.D.'s during their careers in research is developed, using information available at the time applications are submitted. A quality adjusted index of research is used to measure performance. Undergraduate grades, age at time of application and previous graduate training appear to be important for the prediction. Scores on standardized tests do not discriminate within the range covered by the sample.
