Comparison of "Long" and "Regular" English 101.
Hendrix, Vernon L.
Students enrolled in a 5-hour-per-week (long) English 101 class were compared with students taking the same class 3 hours per week (regular). F ratios from multiple linear regression analyses revealed that (1) significant differences existed between the two groups in ACT scores (ACT scores are one criterion used to assign students to long or regular classes), (2) significant ACT score differences existed between students who did and did not subsequently enroll in English 102 in both groups, and (3) no significant differences exist between English 101 grades and grades subsequently earned in English 102 for either group of students. Further analysis, controlling for differences in ACT scores between groups, revealed that if the long and regular groups' ACT scores were equivalenet the percentage of subsequent enrollments in English 102 would also be equal. It was concluded that the long class had educational worth, and further study to identify specific contributing factors was recommended. (MC)
