Linking Grades and College Graduates' Perceptions of Obstacles and Facilitators: A Cautionary Tale
Jorgensen, Shirley; Fichten, Catherine S.
Online Submission
We set out to compare the relationship between the standardized grade averages (CRC scores) of recent college graduates with and without disabilities at a large English CEGEP [College of General and Professional Education]. We also examined the relationship between graduates' perceptions of facilitators and obstacles to academic success, and their exit CRC scores. In the course of our research, we found that many graduates self-reported a disability, even though they had not registered with the college to receive disability related services. Because little is known about graduates with disabilities who do not register, we examined the scores of graduates with disabilities more closely, comparing those who had and had not registered for disability related services.
