The Relationship Between Attendance and Performance in a Remedial Mathematics Program with American Indian Adults.
Immerman, Michael A.
Investigating the relationship between students' daily attendance and mathematics classroom performance, the study was conducted using 23 American Indian adult students enrolled in Remedial Mathematics 100 at the Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute from September 1981 through November 1981. Classroom attendance was recorded on a daily basis for 11 weeks with 50 being the maximum number of daily classes. The mathematics performance was based on a series of seven criterion referenced tests, reviewed and revised to comply with specific course requirements and used in conjunction with the "Contempo Lab - Math Skills Program." Results of the study showed a statistically significant correlation (P<.05) between the variables of attendance and performance. Regression equations for predictive purposes appeared most appropriate, therefore by using attendance as the predictor variable and performance as the criterion variable instructors could predict an individual student's performance based upon attendance. Replication studies are recommended to determine if correlation is consistent within other ethnological samples. (ERB)
