College Performance of New Maryland High School Graduates: Student Outcome and Achievement Report.
Maryland State Higher Education Commission, Annapolis.
This annual Student Outcome and Achievement Report (SOAR) report presents information about how well Maryland high school graduates have done in the initial year of college. The SOAR system collects information about the college performance of new high school graduates, including remedial work needed, grades in English and mathematics courses, and cumulative grade point average. The report draws on combined sets of data to examine the relationship between student academic performance and experiences in high school and how well they did in their initial year in college. The first section of the report examines the differences in college performance for students who completed a college preparatory curriculum in high school and those who did not. The second section contains the results of a multiple regression analysis that seeks to identify the factors that best predict first-year college performance. The third section examines trends in data over the past 6 years, and the final section presents the four-year graduation and transfer rates of students from Maryland community colleges and the 6-year graduation rates of students from public four-year institutions in the state on they basis of whether or not they took a college preparatory course of study in high school.
