campus-level student demographic factor had the closest association to first-year college students
taking remedial coursework. When converted to r2, campus-level non-economically
disadvantaged percentage accounted for 22% of the variance in first-year college students taking
remedial coursework. While several variables showed strong correlations with each other, non-
economically disadvantaged percentage showed to have the overall strongest campus-level
correlations among the other predictor variables, including strong correlations with college-ready
ELA (r = 0.716) and non-at-risk (r = 0.780).
Multiple regression analysis provided insight into the research questions by determining
if the high school campus-level variables non-LEP, non-economic disadvantaged, non-at-risk,
ACT, SAT, college level math, college level ELA, and advanced coursework predicted first-year
college student enrollment into remedial coursework. Table 10 displays the multiple regression
