Dropping Out of Advanced Mathematics: How Much Do Students and Schools Contribute to the Problem?
Ma, Xin; Willms, J. Douglas
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v21 n4 p365-83 Win 1999
Uses data from six waves of the Longitudinal Study of American Youth to discern when and why students drop out of advanced mathematics. Between grades 8 and 9, prior achievement plays a more important role than attitude or socioeconomic status, and between grades 11 and 12, student attitude toward mathematics is the most important factor.
