THE PREDICTION OF GRADES IN COLLEGE ALGEBRA--A CONTINUATION AND EXTENSION.
GELSO, CHARLES J.; WILSON, RAY
HIGH SCHOOL ALGEBRA GRADES OF 157 STUDENTS WERE BETTER PREDICTORS OF THEIR PERFORMANCE IN COLLEGE ALGEBRA (MATH 101) THAN EITHER THEIR SCHOLASTIC APTITUDE TEST-MATHEMATICS PORTION OR THEIR SEQUENTIAL TESTS OF EDUCATION PROGRESS-MATHEMATICS SUBTEST SCORES. THE AVERAGE OF THE STUDENTS' ALGEBRA I AND II GRADES SHOWED A CORRELATION WITH THEIR MATH 101 GRADES OF .47 FOR MALES AND .56 FOR FEMALES. THE ALGEBRA II GRADES SHOWED A CORRELATION WITH MATH 101 GRADES OF .49 FOR MALES AND .63 FOR FEMALES. GRADE PREDICTIONS BASED ON THE DATA GATHERED INDICATE THAT IF A FRESHMAN FEMALE EARNED A D (1.0) IN ALGEBRA II, HER CHANCES OF EARNING A C (2.0) IN MATH 101 WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY ONE IN 10. AT PRESENT A STUDENT MAY ENROLL IN MATH 101 AT SOUTH GEORGIA COLLEGE IF HE HAS TAKEN 2 YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL ALGEBRA, REGARDLESS OF HOW WELL HE PERFORMED IN HIS HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES A COUNSELOR SHOULD CONSIDER A STUDENT'S PERFORMANCE IN HIGH SCHOOL ALGEBRA BEFORE ENCOURAGING HIM TO ENROLL IN MATH 101.
