Evaluating the Relationship between THEA Scores and Graduation Rates among College Students
Jones, Lakia; Kadhi, Tau
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the National Association for Multicultural Education (Prairie View, TX, Mar 27-28, 2009)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA) scores and the Graduation rate of college students attending a Historically Black College or University (HBCU). Using a Regressional analysis that tested the predictability of the Reading, Writing, and Mathematics scores on the THEA to the Graduation rates 4 and 5 years later, it was found that none of these scores were strong predictors of graduation (strongest standardized beta weight =0.034). (Contains 2 tables.)
