Israeli Universities", in EDUCATIONAL MEASUREMENT: ISSUES AND PRACTICE,

In my reply to a previous article in Haayal (דיון 641), I refered to the article mentioned above, that includes the specific prediction numbers for psychometric exam alone vs. its combination with the GPA (0.54 vs. 0.62).
All in all, less than 20% of a student's academic performance can be predicted by either psychometric score or high school GPA.

And yes, I agree with your last point: the race for credentials has shifted higher education from intellectual-oriented to achievement-oriented, and its purpose shifted to be the accumulation of credentials. When the stress for credentials is so intense, students no longer care about the contents of their classes, and just run through college for the stamp at the end of the way.
