Non-Remedial Low-Math Students' Performance in Precalculus: Preliminary Data.
Cuneo, Diane O.
Reported are results of a study of a sample of 259 students at the University of Massachusetts who scored low on a math placement test and later took precalculus math classes. Several possible conclusions are presented to explain the test results. A significantly higher percentage (p<.05) of a remedial sample (compared to a non-remedial sample) successfully completed two precalculus math classes. Data indicate, however, that many of the students who took the remedial experience may not have needed it and may have been misclassified by the math placement test as low-math students. (RH)
