Campus-Level SAT Average
Campus-level SAT average was included in the model as a continuous variable. SAT
average displayed a moderate effect size with first-year college student remediation (r = -0.308).
Multiple regression analysis showed SAT average to be a significant predictor of first-year
college student remedial coursework (3 = -0.174, t(8) = 2.082, p = 0.04). With a moderate effect
size of r = 0.308 and controlling for the remaining variables, non-economically disadvantaged
percentage proved to be a statistically significant predictor of first-year college student remedial
education with r2 = 0.095. SAT average proved to have the second strongest college remediation
predictability from among the eight independent variables. Therefore, in regards to Research
Question 2 and the predictive relationship between high school campus-level variables and
college remediation, SAT average proved to be a statistically significant high school campus-
level predictor of first-year college student remedial education coursework.
In this chapter, the researcher presented the descriptive data and statistical results
concerning the regression analysis examining the strength of relationship between high school
campus-level non-LEP, non-economically disadvantaged, non-at-risk, ACT percentage, SAT
percentage, college-ready math, college-ready ELA, and advanced courses/dual credit courses
have on first-year college student enrollment into remedial coursework. The investigation was
guided by the hypothesis that high school campus factors were relevant predictors of college
student enrollment into remedial education coursework. Pearson correlations and linear
regression results were examined and interpreted to determine the level of relationship between
the eight selected predictor variables and first-year college student remedial coursework.
Regression analysis indicated statistical significance of two high school campus-level variables:
