The Relationship Between Taking AP Courses and College Attendance
This thesis examines the relationship between the likelihood of taking AP courses and the likelihood of attending college. An examination of scholarly work on this topic indicates that AP courses are related to college attendance for students but researchers disagree on the extent of the effect of these courses. The model in this study is a multivariate regression analysis of the likelihood of taking AP courses on college attendance. The data evaluated is from NCES survey results 1988-2000. The results suggest a statistically significant relationship between college attendance and likelihood of taking AP courses for minority and low-income students.
