Mobility: A Multivariate Study of Academic Achievement in Reading and Math for Eighth-Grade Students as Measured by the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program
Donnelly, Margaret M.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The primary purpose of this study was to determine if there was a difference between levels of student mobility in reading and mathematics achievement as measured by the 2007-2008 Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) achievement test. The study also sought to determine if there existed a difference in socioeconomic and attendance groups as they relate to mobility and academic achievement in reading and math as measured by the TCAP. It was not the intent of the study to examine causation factors related to mobility, achievement, attendance, or socioeconomic status of the sample group. However, 1 expected outcome of this research was that the more mobile, higher absentee, and lower socioeconomic groups scored lower on academic achievement scores in both math and reading as measured by the TCAP.
