Oseguera, Leticia; Hwang, Jihee
New Directions for Institutional Research, n158 p37-50 2014
This chapter presents various considerations researchers undertook to conduct a quantitative study on low-income students using a national data set. Specifically, it describes how a critical quantitative scholar approaches guiding frameworks, variable operationalization, analytic techniques, and result interpretation. Results inform how policymakers and school administrators can focus their efforts to improve the academic preparation and college enrollment of low-income students.
