Nguyen, Giang-Nguyen T.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v39 n8 p693-707 2015
This paper examines data from a larger study that focused upon students' experiences and motivations in a college algebra course. The study revealed that students failed this course because of various factors and continued to view this course as a "gatekeeper" class. Through a stepwise multiple regression, the analysis of the ARCS instrument showed that Attention, Relevance, and Confidence were strong predictors of Satisfaction in the course.
