Predictive Factors in Intensive Math Course-Taking in High School
Sciarra, Daniel T.
Professional School Counseling, v13 n3 p196-207 Feb 2010
This article presents a study that investigated factors that distinguish high school students who completed at least one course beyond Algebra 2 from those who completed a course in Algebra 2 or less. The sample included a cohort of 11,909 high school seniors who participated in the Educational Longitudinal Study 2002-2004. Data were analyzed using a multinomial logistic regression and results indicated that student expectations, parent aspirations, race, and socioeconomic status were among the most significant predictors. Implications for school counselors are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
