Predicting Success in a Gateway Mathematics Course
Morrison, Michael C.; Schmit, Shelly
Online Submission
A logit model predicting student outcomes for a gateway course, Math for Liberal Arts, was successfully developed which fits the data well. Two variables, ACT math score and high school GPA, were found to be significant predictors of achieving a C or better in Math for Liberal Arts. A practical implication of the study suggests that with just two pieces of information, a student's high school GPA and his/her ACT math score, a counselor could input these two values into a spreadsheet and obtain the student's predicted probability of success in Math for Liberal Arts. (Contains 9 tables and 2 figures.)
