Jones, Paul; Gloeckner, Gene
Journal of College Admission, n183 p17-20 Spr 2004
The purpose of this study was to determine differences, in first-year college academic performance, between home school and traditional high school graduates, measured by grade point average, retention, ACT test scores, and credits. To accomplish the purpose, nine null hypotheses were tested to determine if there were differences between home school graduates and traditional high school graduates. The results were: No significant difference in first-year grade point averages; No significant difference in college retention during their first-year (fall to spring semester); No significant difference in first-year credit hours earned; No significant difference in the ACT Composite scores; No significant difference in the ACT English test scores; No significant difference in the ACT Mathematics test; No significant difference in the ACT Reading test scores; No significant difference in the ACT Science Reasoning test scores; and No correlation between the variables: first-year grade point average, first year earned credit hours, first-year retention, and the ACT Composite test score.
