Campus Location and Student Performance: A Preliminary Examination.
Cimbala, S. J.
Several studies have attempted to hypothesize about the probable effects on student academic performance at the Commonwealth campus versus Unitersity Park freshman admission for the Pennsylvania State University. This report imposes a framework of predictive modelling on the data in order to derive some notion of the weight of variables in predicting academic success in the university. Within that context, the importance of the issue of campus location at entry can be examined. The author concludes that whether students begin their careers at Penn State at the Delaware County Campus or at University Park, based on inferences that can be made from the data presented, makes little or no difference when effects are measured in multivariate procedures. The statistical tables included in the text are reproduced from the best available copy. (Author/PG)
