The Effects of a Summer Enrichment Program on the Academic Performance of Minority and Disadvantaged Students in the Following Semester.
Saeger, Wain; Valesky, Jill C.
The fall semester's academic performance of forty minority students who had taken part in an eight-week summer Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) is reported on in this paper. HCOP student performance is also compared with a control group of comparable students who had applied to the program, but were not accepted or who declined the offer to participate. Results, presented in two tables, indicate that, for students of approximately equal academic aptitude (defined by ACT score means), HCOP students are performing at higher levels and are also more likely to be enrolled in science-related course work than are the control group students.
