Some Characteristics of Persistent and Non-Persistent Students Who Enrolled Voluntarily in a Developmental Reading Program at the University of Florida.
Parham, Jo Ann Walton
Seventy freshmen in a reading and study skills center participated in a study of the relationship between persistence in participating in a voluntary, noncredit developmental reading program and sex, personality type, entrance reading proficiency, entrance general scholastic ability, type of program selected, and change in grade-point average. The 32 persistent students attended the reading and study skills center for at least nine hours; the 38 nonpersistent students attended for eight or fewer hours. Analyses of results indicated that there were no significant differences between persistent and nonpersistent students on any of the variables tested. (Author/AA)
