Completion and Performance of Ethnic Groups in the English Department at Southwestern College as Compared with All Other Departments, Fall 1973 and Spring 1974.
Tabulations are provided of the results of studies carried out in the fall of 1973 and spring of 1974 comparing the English grades of day and evening students of the various ethnic groups with those in all departments of Southwestern College. Both studies showed that: (1) Mexican/Americans attempt a significantly greater proportion of English classes than do Anglos; (2) Mexican/Americans have a significantly lower level of performance in the English classes as compared with the overall performance of Mexican/Americans in other classes; and (3) Anglo students have a significantly higher level of performance in English classes than Mexican/Americans. Changes noted in the spring 1974 study were that whereas the fall 1973 study showed no significant differences in the withdrawal rates of Mexican/Americans from English classes as compared with Anglos and with Mexican/Americans in other classes, in the latter study, Mexican/Americans withdrew at a significantly greater rate in both comparisons.
