Abstract

This study examined the predictive factors of success in a STEM gateway mathematics course among first-year students at an historically Black institution (HBI). The study consisted of 758 students; 49% males and 51% females who participated in a pre-college summer bridge program between 2007-2010. The results suggest that females were more likely to be successful in mathematics than males. Students who were successful in the mathematics midterm examination were more likely to be successful than students who were unsuccessful. The findings are important in making administrative decisions to improve students retention and graduation rates.
