1. Dean, LaShauna Mychal's. Factors That Influence Minority Student Enrollment at Various Levels of Postsecondary Education.

Degree: PhD, 2013, Old Dominion University

Research indicates disparities in the enrollment of minorities in postsecondary education. However, the reasons for the lower enrollment rates of minorities are less clear. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between sex, income, GPA, racial/ethnic identity, academic self-concept, and sense of school belonging for African American and Latino/Latina students with level of enrollment at postsecondary schools (two-year community college or four-year university). Participants included 256 African American and Latino/Latina students at two-year community colleges and four-year universities in Virginia. GPA and academic self-concept were found to be predictors of enrollment. Specifically, students with higher GPAs are 5.4 times more likely to enroll in a four-year university and students with higher academic self-concept are 1.8 times more likely to enroll in a two-year community college, when controlling for all other variables. There was also a significant interaction of race and sex on academic self-concept, specifically that African American males had the lowest academic self-concept. No group differences were found between African Americans and Latinos/Latinas in ethnic identity, sense of school belonging, and academic self-concept. The limitations of the current study as well as implications for educators and counselors are also presented. Advisors/Committee Members: Edward Neukrug, Jason Osborne, Timothy Grothaus.

2. Kelly, Lorena LeeAnn. The Impact of State Fiscal Effort on Student Achievement Measured By Math Scores From the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP).

Degree: PhD, Educ Foundations & Leadership, 2012, Old Dominion University

The current financial state of our nation, in combination with the pressure to meet state accountability testing and a global call for better prepared twenty first century learners, has produced a situation where all levels of government have to make difficult decisions regarding expenditures. In order to ensure that education receives appropriate funding, research is necessary to show a relationship between spending and student achievement. This study examines the effects of sustained increases and decreases in state fiscal effort on student achievement measured by scores from 4th and 8th grade math NAEP scores over an eighteen year period. A quantitative analysis of the data showed that fiscal effort, independently, is not a significant predictor of student achievement. However, the combined effects of fiscal effort and the percentage of students eligible for free and reduced price lunch (FRPL) significantly predict student achievement. In high poverty schools, sustained increases in fiscal effort result in decreased student achievement. In low poverty schools, sustained increases in fiscal effort result in increased student achievement. Advisors/Committee Members: William A. Owings, John A. Nunnery, Jason Osborne.
