A Comparative Analysis of Academic Development among African American Students in Historically Black versus White Institutions.
Kim, Mikyong Minsun
Using national longitudinal data, this study sought to compare the effect of attending historically black and white institutions of higher education on academic achievement. African American student characteristics and institutional resources were also compared and contrasted. The analyses through hierarchical linear modeling suggested no significant differential effect of attending historically black institutions on the three dimensions of student outcomes: (1) self-reported academic ability; (2) writing; and (3) mathematics. Students at black institutions tended to be more scoioeconomically disadvantaged than those at white institutions, and white institutions tended to have better and more academic resources than black institutions. An appendix lists the variables and coding scheme for the study. (Contains 6 tables and 37 references.) (Author/SLD)
