Kendall, William
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Aurora University
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a summer enrichment math program on mathematics achievement and academic achievement in a comprehensive suburban high school. The program was designed to remediate the mathematical shortcomings of at-risk 9th graders. The students who experienced success in the summer program were placed in the core curriculum. The students who did not experience success or did not participate were placed in remedial courses. This study analyzed the mathematics and academic success of all the at-risk math students and compared their achievement to the students who were determined to be on grade level. The research found that the students on grade level performed significantly better than the at-risk students in math and overall. In addition, the research determined that the students who matriculated to the core curriculum outperformed the other at-risk students in 3 year math GPA, ACT math score, 3-year GPA, and ACT composite.
