A Follow-up Study of UICSM Students Who Started Course 1 in 1958 and 1959.
Comley, Robert E.
Analyzed are the results from a follow-up of two groups of college students: (1) a sample of 400 students who started 9th grade in 1958 and graduate from high school in 1962, and (2) a sample of 728 students who were in high school from 1959 to 1963. Both samples were limited to those students who had continued on to college. The purposes of this study were to compare high school and college achievement, to determine major fields of study in college, to survey college mathematics courses taken, and to sample the attitudes of students toward UICSM courses and toward mathematics in general. A discussion is included for those variables which have significant correlations (.01) with the following items: DAT scores, sex, age, semesters of high school mathematics, college grades, high school grades, CEEB scores, calculus in high school, attitude comments, college major, and taking college mathematics.
