The Effects of a Four-Week Summer Bridge Program.
Ami, Carlon G.
This study reports the results of the pre and post mathematics test administered to student participants of the 2001 Summer Bridge Program, sponsored by the Minority Engineering, Mathematics and Science Department (MEMS) at the University of New Mexico (UNM). There was a four-week time span between the administration of the standardized test, which was administered to 28 incoming science, engineering and mathematics (SEM) students by UNM's Testing Center. Results showed that there was an increase in the initial mathematics placement of approximately 42.9% of the students. There was also an increase in the mean, median and mode of the algebra component of the test, and a change in the correlations between several of the eight variables. (Author)
