Predicting Mathematics Learning Center Visits: An Examination of Correlating Variables
Bannier, Betsy
Learning Assistance Review, v12 n1 p7-16 Spr 2007
This study, which explores factors that motivate developmental mathematics students to seek available assistance with their coursework, showed statistically significant correlations between the number of math learning center visits and various variables. An interaction effect was revealed between mathematics confidence and years of college enrollment. The data suggests that younger college students are less inclined to seek mathematics learning center assistance than returning adults and that students with high levels of mathematics confidence are less inclined to proactively seek academic assistance. The data suggests learning center coordinators might consider exploring ways to reach out to these targeted areas to develop solid academic skills. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
