A Comparison of the Performance of RDS and Non-RDS Students in College Mathematics.
Wynn, Denise E.; Fletcher, Richard K., Jr.
This study compared former remedial students with non-remedial students in regular college mathematics courses. The two groups were compared on regular college mathematics grades, ACT composite scores, ACT mathematics scores, and high school grade point average. Results from the analysis of variance indicated no statistically significant difference on regular college mathematics grades but highly significant differences on the other three predictor variables. Results from stepwise linear regression indicated that performance on RDS courses and tests were better predictors for RDS students while the ACT mathematics scores and high school grades were better for regular college students.
