Statistics-filter: I need to establish to what extent student performance on a particular standardized test is predicted by each of the following: GPA, standardized test scores and a couple of other miscellaneous numerical factors. How do I go about this?

I have a fairly large database of student scores on a particular standardized test that is of primary interest to me. Each student record also contains grade point average information and that student's scores on a couple of other standardized tests.
What statistical techniques can I use to analyze how predictive each of a student's other numbers is of their ultimate performance on the standardized test of interest?
I'm handy with Excel and of a fairly technical bent, but I know almost nothing about statistical analysis. Both direct assistance and pointers to relevant information on the Web would be greatly appreciated!
