A Look at High School Units and Other Background as it Relates to Persisters and Dropped Students.
Osegard, Donald E.
The central purpose of this study was to determine if the quantity of certain high school subjects had significant relationship to academic success or failure of male students at Stout State University. Also studied were high school rank-in-class and the American College Test (ACT) standard composite scores. The following hypotheses were stated in the null form: (1) there is no significant difference between the persister and dropped students in terms of quantity of high school units taken, (2) there is no significant difference between persisters and dropped students regarding total high school units earned, (3) there is no significant difference between persisters and dropped students regarding size of high school class, and (4) there is no significant difference between persisters and dropped students regarding high school rank-in-class and ACT scores. Results show that (1) rank-in-class is the best single predictor for success in college, and (2) the number of units earned in math and science do have an effect on the success of Stout students.
