Douds, Tara, "The Predictive Relationship between Student Engagement Scores and Pass/Fail Rates of a Credit Recovery Course among High School Students" (2018). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 1820.
The purpose of this predictive correlational study was to examine the relationship between Finn’s conceptual framework of student engagement as it relates to the pass/fail rate of an online credit recovery course. A logistic regression was utilized in this study. The predictor variable was student engagement of high school students. The criterion variable was the pass/fail rate of a credit recovery course. The participants included a nonrandom sample of 49 students from two public high schools. The students completed the Motivation and Engagement Scale – High School (MES-HS) survey comprised of 44 questions, which measured student motivation and engagement. The results indicated that student engagement was a predicator of a student's academic success. Suggestions for further research were included.
