Predictive Value of Freshmen Grouping on Class Failures and Discipline Referrals at a Suburban Tennessee High School
Helgesen, Angela
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene College
This research project focuses on a freshman class in a suburban high school where incoming ninth graders were identified as being at-risk or not at-risk; students' scores on eighth grade standardized tests were critical in determining a student's placement in one of the two categories. The researcher established the predictive value of this grouping on class failures for freshmen and discipline referrals. Academic success was charted for each of the 358 students by grading periods and by semesters and was expressed in terms of class and course failures. Discipline referrals were summarized by month, time of day, and type of offense. Recommendations included more precise identification of at-risk students, improved transition programs, mentoring, and increased monitoring of students' progress.
