A Comparative Analysis of Preservice Science Teachers’ College Achievement

John K. Hicks and Edwin P. Christmann
Abstract—This study employed a multiple regression analysis to examine the relationship between aptitude and achievement factors that predict preservice science teacher’s college achievement. Subsequently, this is an analysis of correlations and descriptive statistics for preservice science teachers among 15 undergraduate students enrolled as preservice science teachers. A comparison of SAT–Critical Reading Scores (Verbal), SAT--Quantitative Section (Mathematics), High School Grade Point Average, and College Grade Point Average found significant relationships. Of greatest interest is that the mean high school GPA obtained by the preservice science majors is a 3.55 (SD = .38) and the mean college GPA is 3.08 (SD = .57), which resulted in the highest correlation, r = .528, n = 15, p <.05.

Index Terms—Science, SAT, GPA, preservice, achievement.
