Analysis of Grade Point Average and Grades in Selected Courses for Students in Selected Occupational Programs.
Hendrix, Vernon L.
Comparing the performance of students majoring in Data Processing Programming, Dental Assisting, Electronics Technology and Mid-Management with control groups matched on the basis of sex and ACT scores, no apparant discrimination against the technical majors was found in terms of earned grade point averages or grades in selected courses, with the exception of Dental assistant students' grades in Social Science 131. For overall grade point averages, controls were introduced for high school graduation status and age. Mid-Management and Data Processing Programming students appear to earn higher grade point averages than students not in these programs with the previously mentioned controls operating. In addition, Data Processing Programming students earn higher grades in Business 105 when controls are introduced for Social Science, Natural Science, and Composite ACT scores. (Author/MC)
