Uysal, Figen
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v7 n2 p991-997 May 2007
The purpose of this study is to compare vocational school students' success at basic mathematics subjects with regard to their entrance to the university. The data were obtained by administering a "Personnel Information Form" and "the Mathematics Test" prepared by the researcher to 617 vocational school students and 26 two-year degree programs at the Open University in Turkey. After analyzing the data, a considerable statistical difference in basic mathematical knowledge and skills among students was found based on students' entrance ranks to the programs. The results of the research indicated that there is a significant difference in success on mathematics courses taken at high schools and universities. On the other hand, there was no significant difference between men and women on mathematics tests.
