Performance of GHC's Learning Support Students in Follow-on Classes

Academic Year 2004-05

For ENGL 0099, students who began in LS English successfully completed the GHC ENGL 1101 at a rate (77.5%) similar to students who were not required to take LS English (77.7%). The success rate in ENGL 1101 for students who started in LS English at GHC is higher than the system-wide average for students who started in LS English (70.24).   The success rate for students who began in LS English courses and took PSYC 1101 (78.9%) was slightly less than the rate for students who did not begin in LS English (81.4%). [Note: It is not known whether the difference is statistically significant.]

For READ 0099, students who began in LS Reading courses successfully completed the GHC ENGL 1101 at a rate (75.9%) near that of students who were not required to take LS Reading (77.7%). In addition, the success rate in ENGL 1101 for students who started in LS Reading at GHC was higher than the system-wide average for LS Reading students (66.9%).  Students who began in LS Reading courses and took PSYC 1101 succeeded at a rate (78.6%) slightly lower than those who did not begin in LS Reading (81.4%). [Note: It is not known whether the difference is statistically significant.]

For MATH 0097 and 0099, students who began in LS courses successfully completed the GHC MATH 1101 at a higher rate (65.4%) than students not required to take LS courses (60.9%). Students who began in LS courses successfully completed the GHC MATH 1111 at a similar rate (61.9%) to students not required to take LS courses (62.4%).

More impressively, GHC success rates compared favorably with success rates of non-LS students system wide, while exceeding success rates of LS students system-wide. That is, the system-wide success rate for non-LS students in MATH 1101 was 64.1%, which compares favorably with the success rates for GHC LS and non-LS students stated above. However, GHC success rates exceeded the system-wide LS success rate of 57.7%.

This was also true for MATH 1111. The system-wide success rate for non-LS students in MATH 1111 was 58.1%, which compares favorably with the success rates for GHC LS and non-LS students stated above. The GHC success rate exceeded the system-wide LS success rate of 48.4%.
