Reports on grades in mathematics for REFs and Non-REFs students: Spring2005

Third quarter grades in mathematics for the Summer 04 REF students were compared with freshmen who were NOT in Summer 04 REF (Honors and IEP students were excluded from the latter sample).

The graph shows the distribution of grades in mathematics for the two groups: REF and non-REF:

Group * Mathematics Grade Spring 05 Crosstabulation

 Mathematics Grade Spring 05 E D C B A Total Group REF 4 2 7 5 8 26 Non REF 79 26 40 20 13 178 Total 83 28 47 25 21 204

The difference between the means (average Third Quarter graphs in mathematics) is statistically significant, in favor of the REF group, at the .01 level.

The graph shows the distribution of grades in mathematics for the two groups: REF and non-REF:

These findings are similar to those for First Quarter Grades in mathematics, Fall 2004

Reports on grades in English/Reading for REFs and Non-REFs students: Spring 2005

Third quarter grades in English/reading for the Summer 04 REF students were compared with freshmen who were NOT in Summer 04 REF (Honors and IEP students were excluded from the latter sample).

The graph shows the distribution of grades in reading for the two groups: REF and non-REF:

 English/Reading Grade Spring 05 E D C B A Total Group REF 5 9 8 5 3 30 Non REF 78 46 30 17 2 173 Total 83 55 38 22 5 203

The difference between the means (average Third Quarter graphs in English/reading) is statistically significant, in favor of the REF group, at the .01 level.

The graph shows the distribution of grades in reading for the two groups: REF and non-REF:

These findings are similar to those for First Quarter Grades in English/reading, Fall 2004
