Selected Preadmission and Remedial Factors and Their Relationship to Success in Freshman English.
Williams, James W.
This study related selected preadmission data obtained on first year freshman students admitted to the University of Southern Mississippi in the fall of 1971-72 academic year to the subsequent grades they received in freshman English courses 100 and 111. The subjects of this study were 71 first year freshman students at the University selected by a stratified random sample procedure. Data obtained from the students' records were sex, high school grade-point average, high school English grade-point average, ACT composite score, ACT English score, and the University of Southern Mississippi English grades. Mean grades for the students in each course provided a means of comparison. Results of the study indicated (1) the full model regression equation would be a significant predictor of English 111 successes; and (2) a student's high school grade-point average and ACT composite score would be significant contributors to the prediction of English 111 success.
