This study determined: (a) how well six variables, type and focus of anatomy and physiology (AP) courses, number of credits and final grades in the AP courses, type of institution in which the course was taken, and time lapse since completion of the course and matriculation into the program, could predict competence on a teacher-made AP screening examination; and (b) how well scores on the AP screening test could predict success in the didactic component of the three clinical-nursing courses.



A multiple regression model was used to analyze the relationship among the six predictors and the screening examination. A simple regression was used to predict the relationship between the AP screening test and success in the three clinical nursing courses.



The sample consisted of 86 student records of the entering class of 1991 into the upper division of a generic baccalaureate program. All students entered this program having completed lower division pre-requisite courses at other colleges. The AP screening examination consists of 50 multiple choice questions and represents six body systems. The KR score is .60.



The six predictor variables, as a group accounted for 19 percent of the variance in the AP screening test. However, only two variables, final grade in AP and the college where the AP course was taken explained significant amounts of variance (17 percent). The AP screening test explained .08, .11, and .08 amount of the variance, respectively, in the three clinical nursing courses.
