Student Achievement in College Calculus, Louisiana State University 1967-1968.
Scannicchio, Thomas Henry
An investigation of freshmen achievement in an introductory calculus course was performed on the basis of high school mathematics background to find predictors of college calculus grades. Overall high school academic achievement, overall high school mathematics achievement, number of high school mathematics units, pattern of college preparatory mathematics, and standardized test scores constituted data for the 314 students involved in the study. Findings revealed that the two factors considered most useful as predictors of college calculus grades were overall high school academic and mathematics achievement. Students in general achieved at least one letter grade lower in college calculus than in overall high school academic and mathematics achievement. (JG)
