dc.description.abstractThis study examined the requisite math course performance of 8,273 students at Kennesaw State University from 1998 to 2007. Of these students, 7,849 completed prerequisite math courses at KSU, while 424 transfer students completed prerequisite math courses from within the Math Mini-Core at Chattahoochee Technical College. Aggregate findings and four out of five individual course-based findings indicated there were statistically significant relationships between the source of prerequisite coursework and performance in requisite coursework, with university native students performing better than technical college transfer students. Additional findings indicated that the profile for at-risk university math students may be distinguished by younger black male students, especially native students. Further examination of the data that was isolated to CTC transfer students indicated that part-time students with a low GPA at the time of transfer and had recently taken prerequisite math courses were potentially at-risk.
