that factors such as socioeconomic demographics, college-ready ELA distinctions, and SAT
score percentages can help secondary school administrators understand which programs or which
of their campus students are more likely to have, or not have success in college.
Knowledge of the predictive relationship socioeconomic status has on first-year college
student success can help secondary educators identify which of their high school students are
statistically more likely to struggle with collegiate coursework. Understanding that high school
students who are economically disadvantaged are more likely to struggle with college
coursework can help secondary educators adequately plan and implement appropriate programs
to help increase student college readiness. Knowing the English-Language Arts assessment
criteria related to earning a college-ready ELA distinction is statistically significant to first-year
college student enrollment into remedial coursework can aide secondary administrators as they
look to provide their professional staff with teaching strategies and classroom materials. Lastly,
the knowledge that SAT score percentage has a relationship with college-level remediation can
help secondary schools allocate resources, create curriculum, and implement strategies to help
increase high school student acquisition of the academic skills measured by the SAT
Suggestions for Further Educational Research
Many graduating high school students are finding themselves academically
underprepared to matriculate successfully into the rigor and expectations expected of many
colleges and universities. As a result, these first-year college students are often being required to
enroll into developmental education programs and remedial courses as a prerequisite to entry-
level college coursework. The researcher designed the study to evaluate high school campus-
level factors in order to help determine which of these factors serve as predictors of college
