A study was conducted at Evergreen Valley College (EVC) and San Jose City College (SJCC) to determine persistence rates over 4 academic years for students with no previous college experience who entered arithmetic (Math 310), beginning algebra (Math 12), and intermediate algebra (Math 13) courses in fall 1988. The study sought to determine persistence through transfer level Math by the end of spring 1992. Study results included the following: (1) at EVC, 7% of the Math 310, 10% of the Math 12, and 25% of the Math 13 students achieved transfer level math competence; (2) at SJCC, 3% of the Math 310, 11% of the Math 12, and 35% of the Math 13 students achieved transfer level competence; (3) at EVC, 7% of both males and females in Math 310 achieved transfer level, compared to 11% of males and 10% of females in Math 12 and 29% of males and 18% of females in Math 13; (4) at SJCC, 4% of males and 2% of females in Math 310 achieved transfer level, compared to 15% of males and 8% of females in Math 12 and 34% of males and 35% of females in Math 13; (5) for students in all three courses at EVC, persistence rates by ethnicity were 17% for Asians, 11% for Hispanics, 5% for Blacks, and 4% for Whites; and (6) for students in all three courses at SJCC, persistence rates by ethnicity were 18% for Asians, 10% for Hispanics, 9% for Blacks, and 7% for Whites.
