Comparing first year engineering students’ math and verbal ACT scores and performance in introductory engineering and composition courses
Pavlis Honors College
This work in progress paper attempts to uncover the links between incoming student ACT (math and reading/writing scores) and performance in first year engineering and compositions courses. Statistically significant differences were found, with incoming students possessing greater math than reading/writing abilities (as measured by ACT exams). However, average performance in first year composition and engineering classes displayed the opposite relationship.
