The Use of Multiple Regression and Path Analysis in Analyzing Success in Journalism at Iowa State University.
Byerly, Richard Lee
The general objectives of this study were to develop, investigate, and analyze the academic patterns of Iowa State journalism graduates from 1965-1970 and, with the use of multivariate statistical techniques, attempt to ascertain and determine possible inferences regarding their academic success. Grade point averages were considered as quantitative measures of academic success. Nine variables were hypothesized to be related to student success in journalism. Data were analyzed by multiple regression techniques and path model analyses. Viewing the standard regression coefficients, the most important variables in the model were humanities success and science success. The path model analysis indicated that humanities success, social science success, and life science success each have a direct effect on student academic success. It was concluded that a wide general academic background was instrumental for student success in journalism at Iowa State University. (Author/CK)
