The relationship between response pattern aberrance and course performance in math placement by Steve Chatman( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

University-level mathematics placement examinations might yield summary measures that are differentially accurate due to individual differences in the recall of previously-learned material. In particular, test scores in algebra and trigonometry may be subject to sporadic recall of solution procedures, resulting in aberrant response patterns. The potential of the individually-oriented standardized extended caution index (eci) for contributing to prediction of future mathematics achievement was explored in two studies. The first study was designed to explore the predictive usefulness of the eci as derived from pre-enrollment algebra and trigonometry exams. Specifically, analyses were designed to determine the ability of eci to improve the prediction of performance in subsequent college-level mathematics courses. The results provided some evidence that supported the hypothesis of the sporadic recall, but only for trigonometry solution procedures and only for precalculus students. Therefore, a replication of the first study was undertaken to determine whether the marginally significant results were spurious. The results of Experiment 2 did not support the hypothesis of sporadic recall. Based on these two studies, there would appear to be no reason to routinely consider an incoming university student's placement test aberrance, as measured by the eci, when determining a course placement.

Can Race-Blind Policies Produce a Diverse Student Body? Air 1998 Annual Forum Paper by Steve Chatman( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper argues that there is reason to reconsider college admissions policies on three levels because: (1) some admissions measures exhibit racial or economic/social status bias, (2) there is evidence that financial barriers exist, and (3) a belief exists that race-blind admissions policies which include adjustments that offset students' social and economic circumstances can yield a more racially diverse student body than those mandated by legislation or judicial action. The first section of the paper examines key judicial and legislative actions to illustrate the evolution of racial preferences in the admissions process. In the next section, the paper reviews the results of research using criterion-related or predictive measures of validity and also looks at selection-bias research. In the next section, characteristics of students in public higher education in Missouri are examined for evidence of economic barriers to access. Finally, a series of race-blind admissions models designed to offset social and economic barriers were applied to Missouri's student population in an attempt to produce a diverse student body at colleges within the state. Sixteen data tables and three figures are appended. (Contains 24 references.) (Ch)

Reporting Students of Unknown Race/thnicity. Air 1996 Annual Forum Paper by Larry W Linneman( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study evaluated accuracy of the assumption of the National Center for Educational Statistics (nces) that higher education students of unknown race or ethnicity should be distributed over the remaining resident categories in the proportion of those whose race/ethnicity is known. This study endeavored to estimate the error associated with any inaccuracy in this assumption. Data were collected through a survey of 30 Missouri public two- and four-year institutions to determine institutional practices regarding unknowns before 1990 and through phone interviews of students with unknown race and ethnicity. Results from the university survey indicated that about 80 percent of institutions classified all unknowns as "white" suggesting that NCES's policy of proportionally distributing unknowns over the available resident categories did not accurately reflect the reporting practice among postsecondary institutions prior to 1990. Results from the phone interview survey of 102 students who failed to report their race/ethnicity found no African Americans in this group and more Native Americans, Asians, and Pacific Islanders than expected. The institutional and student surveys suggested that any assumption regarding the characteristics of unknowns has the potential to mislead policy decisions regarding current ethnic composition at institutions. Alternative methods of classifying unknown students are compared. (Ck)
