The Effect of Advanced Placement and Concurrent Enrollment on Post Secondary Math Achievement
Kremers, Angela L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Arkansas at Little Rock
Unprepared postsecondary students and poor high school retention rates emphasize a significant issue with education in the U.S. Although there have been increases in the number of programs to address retention and matriculation to degree attainment, little research has been completed to examine outcomes of these programs. Advanced placement and concurrent enrollment are two such programs in which high school students are purported to be better prepared for college while getting a head start on college credits. The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of advanced placement and concurrent enrollment on post secondary math achievement. The multi linear regression analysis revealed no significant effect on post secondary math achievement by the two programs, although level of higher math taken in high school, GPA, and parent's highest level of education were predictors. Programs need to assure inclusion of requirements for level and number of math courses with highly qualified teachers to improve post secondary math achievement outcomes.
