meet the assumptions of equal means and variance with the population, nonparametric
analyses of variance and multiple comparison tests were completed to compare the
groups of the independent variables over each dependent variable.
The analyses revealed that for the sample of medical students selected for this
study there was an association between academic lineage and student performance in
medical school. Differences were found among Carnegie classifications on the
dependent variables of cumulative medical school grade point average, class rank, failure
rate, and score on Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensure Examination. Further, it
was found that admission selectivity was also associated with student performance in
medical school for each dependent variable except failure rate. Finally, the study results
indicated no association between public or private governing control and student
performance in medical school.
