Abstract: The purposes of the present study were: to replicate earlier research that had suggested four factors which were related to success in a VR program; to test the ability of a multiple regression equation formed from these four factors to predict success in an independent VR sample; and to evaluate the Phillips Scale of Premorbid Adjustment as a predictor of success in the program. Data for the 40 subjects that had been used by the earlier study were employed in forming a multiple regression equation. Additional data pertaining to the four measures were gathered on an independent sample of 44 subjects. In Group I a significant positive relationship (R = .56, p <.05) between the four variables and success was indicated; however, when the data from subjects in Group II were fitted into the equation, the predictions were far less accurate. Inter-correlations of the variables were computed for both groups. These correlations indicated no significant relationships between any of the four factors and success for Group II. Therefore, this study did not find support for the findings of the previous research.
