ABSTRACT In t h i s thesis we consider the records of students who graduated from B r i t i s h Cloumbia high schools, and who registered at U.B.C. for the f i r s t time i n the 1977 f a l l term, including f i r s t - y e a r calculus (Math 100) as one of t h e i r courses. Using canonical cor-r e l a t i o n techniques, we scale the Math 100 grades and the grade 12 mathematics grades. Other methods of multidimensional s c a l i n g are also considered. Analyses of variance are c a r r i e d out to examine re l a t i o n s h i p s between grade achieved i n Math 100 and several-school f a c t o r s , namely type of semesterization, Math 12 textbook, and geometry background for the 1976-77 high school graduating c l a s s . Then grade 12 mathematics grade i s introduced as a covariate, and the above' analyses repeated. F i n a l l y the methods of correspondence analysis are described and an example of t h e i r a p p l i c a t i o n presented.

In p a r t i c u l a r he considered graduates from B r i t i s h Columbia (B.C.) high schools. Dr. Bluman reported on factors such as high school geographical l o c a t i o n , high school semes-t e r i z a t i o n type, and students' grade 12 mathematics grades i n order to study the asso c i a t i o n between Math 12 and Math 100 grades. During the 1976-77 school year, B.C. high schools were at various stages of a change-over i n t h e i r mathematics programs. Some schools were teaching a course c a l l e d Algebra 12; others were teaching Math 12. Throughout t h i s thesis we r e f e r to a student's grade 12 mathematics course as Math 12. Some schools had offered a grade 10 geometry course u n t i l 1975. Thus students from these schools had some background i n geometry. Some schools have only grades 11 and 12 - t h e i r students can come from any one of several "feeder" schools. The feeder schools for a given high school need not have a l l offered a grade 10 geometry course. Thus some students i n f i r s t year calculus at U.B.C. had had no geometry, some students had had geometry, and we do not know about the others. There were also differences between schools v i s - a - v i s the textbook used i n Math 12. Most schools used the book by D o l c i a n i . A few used "Using Advanced. Algebra" (U.A.A.) , and many schools used both texts. One school used a book by Keedy and B i t t i n g e r ; another used "Precalculus Mathematics" (PCM) . 2 We define a."large" school as one from which at l e a s t ten students "with f u l l information" registered f o r a f i r s t year calculus course at U.B.C. i n September, 1977. (A student with f u l l information i s one for whom we have a Math 12 grade, and who did not drop out of the calculus course. ) With respect to semesterization, we can c l a s s i f y large schools as one of the following : 1. UNSEMESTERED. In an unsemestered school, Math 12 i s a f u l l - y e a r course taught, f o r example, for 5 hours i n every 7 days.. 2. SINGLE-SEMESTERED. Math 12. i s taught usually f o r llA hours per day for one (approximately f i v e month) semester. There i s no other mathematics course a v a i l a b l e during the months when Math 12 i s not taught. 3. DOUBLE-SEMESTERED. Math 12 i s a two-term f u l l - y e a r course, taught for one hour per school day. 4. MIXED. This category r e f e r s to schools which are unusual. For example, some sections of Math 12 could be single-semestered while others i n the same school were unsemestered. 5. INDEPENDENT. These are pri v a t e schools. We s h a l l examine l a t e r how the choice of semesterization, textbook and geometry a f f e c t s student performance i n t h e i r calculus course. Geo-graphical locations are not considered here. In the U.B.C. academic year 1977-78, f i r s t - y e a r calculus was divided into two parts : Math 100 and, contingent on passing Math 100, 3 Math 101. Most f i r s t - y e a r students who take Math 100 do so i n the F a l l term, and then take Math 101 i n the Winter term. Graduates from B.C. high schools were normally not admitted to Math 100 unless they had a grade of 'C or better i n Math 12. (Possible grades from Math 12 were A, B, C+, C, Pass, and F a i l . ) There were 39' sections of Math 100 i n the 1977 f a l l term. Three of these sections, c a l l e d "Honours Sections", were designed f or students who had demonstrated a b i l i t y i n mathematics, through a high grade i n the Scholarship Exam or Basic Math Test. Students from these sections had the same curriculum as, but harder problems than, students from other sections. Students from the honours sections wrote the same f i n a l exam at Christmas as the students from the other sections. In t h i s thesis we consider the students who registered i n a f i r s t - y e a r Math 100 course at U.B.C. i n the 1977 f a l l term. In Chapter I we describe the data and explain some of the ways i n which the data were edited. Then i n Chapter II we examine methods of s c a l i n g the Math 100 and Math 12 grades. Using a set of numerical scores determined by the methods of Chapter I I , we proceed with the data analysis i n Chapter I I I . In that chapter we. examine how school semesterization type, textbook • used i n Math 12, and amount of geometry studied a f f e c t students' Math 100 grades. We also i n v e s t i g a t e the i n t e r a c t i o n of these three v a r i a b l e s . As w e l l , an analysis i s c a r r i e d out to determine whether students i n honours sections had s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher grades i n Math 100 than students i n nonhonours sections. In Chapter IV we describe correspondence a n a l y s i s , and apply t h i s method to our data. 4 CHAPTER I THE DATA Almost 1700 of the students who registered i n the Mathematics 100 course at U.B.C. i n the 1977 f a l l term had graduated from a B.C. high school, and were attending U.B.C. for the f i r s t year. These students represented more than 150 high schools, of which 59 sent ten or more students who completed ( i.e.passed or f a i l e d , but did not drop out of) the Math 100 course and who had a grade of at le a s t C i n Math 12. The Math 12-grades that we s h a l l use i n t h i s . t h e s i s are not the grades a c t u a l l y received by the students. In the spring of each year, the Registrar's o f f i c e receives from the high schools estimates of t h e i r students' f i n a l grades. The Math 12 grades a c t u a l l y attained are not entered on the students' records. Thus.the grades used throughout t h i s thesis are-the estimated Math 12,grades. The Registrar's o f f i c e provided us with the following data for each B.C. high school graduate who registered i n Math 100 i n the 1977 f a l l term : 1. the high school from which the student graduated; 2. the l a s t i n s t i t u t i o n attended by the student; 3. the mark (A,B,C+,C,Pass or Unknown) that was sub-mitted as an estimate of the student's Math 12 grade; 4. the section of Math 100 i n which the student was regi s t e r e d ; 5. the mark out of 75 obtained i n Math 100; and 6. the corresponding letter-grade achieved i n Math 100 (under 38 = F; 38 to 48 = P; 49 to 59 = 2nd c l a s s ; over 59 = 1st c l a s s ) . For the purposes of t h i s study we are interested only i n those students who.graduated from a B.C. high school i n 1977; more s p e c i f i c a l l y we are interested i n those who took Math 12 i n the 1976-77 academic year. Unfortunately the year of graduation from high school was not av a i l a b l e . We discarded from the study any students for whom 1. and 2. above did not match because i t seemed l i k e l y that any such students had spent time at another post-secondary i n s t i t u t i o n before entering U.B.C. However as mentioned above, the only students for whom we have informa-t i o n are f i r s t - y e a r students who had graduated from a B.C. high school. Thus we do not consider students who are taking Math 100 for the second or t h i r d time at U.B.C, nor do we consider students who resumed t h e i r studies at U.B.C'. a f t e r taking some time o f f , nor do we consider students i n t h e i r second or t h i r d year at U.B.C. who are taking Math 100 for the f i r s t time. We were supplied with neither r e g i s t r a t i o n number nor year of high school graduation f o r any student, hence we cannot i d e n t i f y students who took time o f f between high school and U.B.C. However current work by Dr. George Bluman indicates that at most 3% of the 1670 students considered here take time o ff between leaving high school and f i r s t entering u n i v e r s i t y . Seventeen students had no Math 12 grade recorded. These students were not used i n the study. Twenty students who had received a grade of 'P' (Pass) i n Math 12 were admitted c o n d i t i o n a l l y to Math 100. These students' records were also deleted since normally a student i s not admitted to Math 100 unless he had a grade of 'C or better i n Math 12. The one student whose grade was recorded as 'C-' was also not used. We turn now to the students who did not f i n i s h .Math 100,. i . e . of MATH 12 GRADE A B C+ .

We reason as follows : i f the Math 12 grades of those students who dropped out of Math 100 come from the same population as the grades of those students who did not drop out, then we could consider replacing 'N' by some mark. For example, i f an 'N' student has an 'A' from Math 12, we could assign as h i s mark the average Math 100 grade achieved by a l l 'A' students who did not drop the course. In Table I we compare the d i s t r i b u t i o n of Math 12 grades for students who completed ( i . e . did not drop out of ) Math 100 with the 2 d i s t r i b u t i o n f o r students who dropped out of Math 100. A Pearson's x ~ 2 test applied to Table I y i e l d s x = 43.49 with three degrees of freedom, which i s highly s i g n i f i c a n t . Table II compares the d i s t r i b u t i o n of Math 12 grades for students who f a i l e d Math 100 with the d i s t r i b u t i o n of Math 12 grades for students 2 who withdrew from Math 100. A Pearson's x _ test applied to Table II 2 y i e l d s x = 1.54 with 3 degrees of freedom,which i s highly n o n s i g n i f i c a n t . It appears, then, that (for example) we could have replaced the 'N' grade attained i n Math 100 by students who received a Math 12 grade of 'A' by, the average Math 100 grade out of 75 obtained by 'A' students who f a i l e d Math 100. In t h i s thesis we decided to exclude the records of students who withdrew from Math 100. This d e c i s i o n i s discussed further i n the Conclusions (Chapter V).

Notice the student ( l i n e 25) who went to Camosun College at some time between;leaving high school and entering U.B.C. The other set of data required for our study consists of informa-t i o n on the schools themselves. In.order.to examine the r o l e s of semes-t e r i z a t i o n , textbook and geometry i n determining the Math 100 grade, we r e s t r i c t our attention to the 59 large schools mentioned e a r l i e r . (Recall that a large school i s one which had ten or more students with f u l l data sets taking Math 100 i n the 1977 f a l l term.) The Mathematics Departments' heads at these schools were interviewed by telephone to determine : 1. whether t h e i r school was semestered i n 1976-77 and, i f so, since when; 2. the time organization for Math 12 i n 1976-77, for example, whether Math 12 was taught for 1 hour per school day for two semesters, or 5 hours every 7 days for one school year, etc. 3. the text used i n Math 12 i n 1976-77,as w e l l as any supplementary material; 4. whether or not the students who took Math 12 i n 1976-77 had had a geometry course i n grade 10 ; 5. the approximate number of students i n grade 12 i n 1976-77 . 1 0 6. the approximate number of students i n Math 12 i n 1976-77 ; and 7. the approximate number of sections of Math 12 i n 1976-77 i n t h e i r school. We also determined i n each case whether changes were planned for 1978-79, and whether there were differences between the current 1977-78 school year and the 1976-77 year. One department head could not be reached, three department heads declined to answer any of our questions, and one school had burned down since l a s t year. That l e f t 54 schools and 1112 students. Omit-ti n g private and mixed schools we obtain 49 schools and 1035 students. Tables IV, V.and VI summarize some of the data c o l l e c t e d . With respect to textbook, categories 2. through 7. were combined, so that three textbook groupings were obtained : 1. U.A.A. only , 2. D o l c i a n i only, and 3. Combinations and Other. The geometry categories were also combined to form three groupings : 1. no geometry 10 offered, 2. geometry 10 offered, and 3. do not know. Figure 1 i s a frequency polygon for a l l 1670 students, excluding those who dropped out of Math 100. We see there the number of students who received each of the possible marks i n Math 100. Very few students get marks of 37, 48 or 59 since these marks are a l l just below the lowest mark i n the next grade-category. Thus, for example, a student would get a high second class of 58 or a low f i r s t class of 60, but not a borderline grade of 59 out of 75. This explains the peaks at 38, 49 and 60. 11 NUMBER OF SCHOOLS NUMBER OF HOURS 9 5 hours i n 7 days 4. 5 hours ' i n 8 days 1 5 hours i n 9 days . 5 3 hours i n 5 days 1 hours i n 10 days TOTAL : 20 Unsemestered Schools 14 1^25 hours per day 2 . .1 hour per day 1 3 100-minute periods i n 4 days 2 80 minutes per day TOTAL : 19 Single Semestered Schools 10 1 hour per day TOTAL : 10 Double Semestered Schools ALSO : 2 Private Schools, 3 Mixed'Schools TABLE IV : Semester Types and Hours of Math 12 Taught for 54 Large Schools 12 TEXT COMBINATION NUMBER OF SCHOOLS '. 1..

Introduction For each student, we have a Math 100 mark out of 75, and a Math 12 grade (A, B, C+ or C). The Math 12 grades are simply l a b e l s that have an order. We want more than j u s t an ordering : we want to be able to place these grades on a scale so as to examine the r e l a t i v e d ifferences between the various grades. S i m i l a r l y , we want .to see how the Math 100 marks compare when, subject to some c r i t e r i o n , we scale them. Thus each mark and grade w i l l have associated with i t a new numerical score. We can examine these scores to see i f they reveal any patterns i n the data. Later, we w i l l use the scores to perform analyses of covariance. In t h i s chapter we s h a l l f i r s t l y describe methods of determining scores to assign to the categories of two v a r i a b l e s . We s h a l l then apply these methods to our data.

The remaining nonzero eigenvalues are the canonical - 2 correlations. The largest i s the maximum squared.correlation, , between our two variables. We then calculate the eigenvector corres-~ 2 ponding to whose elements have mean zero and variance one. This gives us one set of scores - (namely, the x. i f r < c and the y_. other-wise) . Then we can find the other set by using (II-3) or c (II-7) x = I n y / (n p. ) . j=l . Corresponding to the kth nonzero eigenvalue, we can calculate a kth set of scores with mean zero and variance one. In this way we obtain m = min ( r - l , c - l ) sets of scores. Kendall and Stuart [17] describe a test by B a r t l e t t to test whether, assuming that k canonical correlations are nonzero, the remaining ones are zero. The test s t a t i s t i c i s k 1 -j mi n ( r - l , c - l ) „ - { n - l - k - ( r + c + 1 ) + 1 : 2 V log TT ( 1 - p. ) , i= l i 1 2 2 j=k+l which i s approximately x 2 with [(r-k)(c-k)] degrees of freedom. Thus once we have calculated the eigenvalues, we may test to see which of them are not s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t from zero, and calculate the scores based on these nonzero canonical correlations. We can apply t h i s method of canonical correlations to our data. Let variable A represent the Math'100 grade out of 75. There are 71 categories, since the grades 0, 1 , 7, 37 and 59 were not assigned to any students. Variable B represents the Math 1 2 grade, which i s divided intofour categories : A, B, C+ and C.

The eigenvalues obtained are = 1.0 , P x 2= 0.3619433 , p 2 2 = 0.0672655 and p 3 2 = 0.0421717. Table VII 2 ' shows the r e s u l t of using B a r t l e t t ' s test to see whether p 2 and 2 p ^ are zero. From the r e s u l t s of t h i s table, we conclude that p 2 & p ^ are zero. Table VIII shows the count data, together with the transformed - 2 " 2 (to mean zero and variance one) scores corresponding to p ^ and p 2 . - 2 The scores based on p^. are l a b e l l e d "CCl Scores" ; those based on „ 2 P 2 are l a b e l l e d "CC2 Scores" . Table VIII also contains the "Standard-ized Scores" ; these we discuss l a t e r . The Math 100 "CCl Scores" do not preserve the monotone-increasing . property of the Math 100 grades; that i s , i f we project the scores onto an axis and l a b e l each with the corresponding Math 100 grade, then the order 2,3,4,...75 w i l l not be preserved. Furthermore, we see that the grades with proportional counts get the same "CCl Score" - f o r example, Math 100 grades of 3, 5 and 48 a l l get a score of -0.381. We started with a 71 x 4 matrix, which had rank at most 4, so that there are at most four nonzero eigenvalues. Since the nonzero eigenvalues of the transpose of a matrix are equal to the eigenvalues of the o r i g i n a l matrix, we work with the 4 x 71 matrix and f i n d i t s eigenvalues. For each eigenvalue, we c a l c u l a t e the scores corresponding to each of the four Math 12 grades. The Math 100 grades are expressed as l i n e a r combinations of these Math 12 scores.

Since with t h i s data we are expressing seventy-one scores as l i n e a r combinations o f . j u s t four others, random v a r i a t i o n leads almost i n e v i t a b l y to proportional c e l l s of the type described, and hence to the anomaly that d i f f e r e n t Math 100 grades are assigned the same score. Figure 2 shows how the scores correspond [11]. The h o r i z o n t a l axis i s the score with respect to the f i r s t canonical c o r r e l a t i o n ; the v e r t i c a l axis i s the score with respect to the second canonical c o r r e l -a t i o n . Each l e t t e r e d point describes a Math 12 grade. Each numbered point represents the corresponding Math 100 grade out of 75. The graph emphasizes how l i t t l e the scores describe the increasing nature of the grades. We should also comment on the Math 12 scores. We see that the CCl-score for a grade of A i s the only non-negative Math 12 CCl-score. The CCl-scores for C and C+ are close, i n d i c a t i n g that t h i s scoring system does not d i f f e r e n t i a t e well between C and C+ students. In summary, we have determined the scoring scheme that maximizes the product moment c o r r e l a t i o n between our two v a r i a b l e s .

Canonical Correlations on Subgroups In the preceding section we had two v a r i a b l e s , one with many cate-gories, the other with few. Some categories contained many observations, while others had only one or two members. With such low counts, the p r o b a b i l i t y of having duplicate or proportional categories (with respect to the count data) i s high. We now seek scores which preserve the natural ordering of the grades. Our f i r s t step i s to reduce the number of Math 100 categories by combining adjacent categories. This w i l l also help to reduce the large differences i n category s i z e , and to eliminate proportional categories. We then apply the canonical c o r r e l a t i o n analysis of section II-2 to the regrouped data. Table IX shows the twenty-eight subgroups formed by grouping the Math 100 categories. It also indicates the grades (out of 75) combined to form each new category. The Math 100 standings (1st c l a s s , - 2 2nd c l a s s , etc.) are i d e n t i f i e d . The eigenvalues obtained are =1.0, ' * 2 2 2 = 0.34930 , p 2 =0.04357 and p 3 = 0.01176, which means that the maximum c o r r e l a t i o n squared i s 0.34930, as compared with 0.36194 for the preceding a n a l y s i s . Consider the scores themselves, presented.in Table IX as "CCl-Scores" and "CC2-Scores". The Math 12 scores are again i n the correct order, and are almost i d e n t i c a l to the scores obtained i n the preceding section. The CCl-scores for the new Math 100 categories seem to preserve the order s l i g h t l y better but, as Figure 3 shows, we s t i l l do not have a completely monotone scale.

II-5. Alternate Method Number Three This i s the l a s t method of assigning scores that we consider. It i s suggested by Kendall and Stuart [16], page 573. (See also Barnett and Lewis[3].) In th i s case we assume an underlying normal d i s t r i b u t i o n . Consider . v a r i a b l e A which, we r e c a l l , has r categories. Suppose that the underlying normal d i s t r i b u t i o n i s divided into r i n t e r v a l s , with boundary points given by -oo = u < u.. < u„ < . . . < u = +».. o 1 2 r If p_^ = n^'/n i s the proportion observed i n the i t h i n t e r v a l , then we l e t t. be the mean value of the i t h i n t e r v a l , i . e . -z 2 • ze dz V27 t. 1 l - l •u. e~" " dz J .

Notice that - u 2 J2 1. -u 2/2 e l - l : e 1 /2TT' /2TT the d i f f e r e n c e of the standard normal d i s t r i b u t i o n at u^_^ and at u^ . Then we can compute the . Our.scores are determined by standardizing the t ^ so that they have mean zero and variance one. The process i s repeated f o r v a r i a b l e B. We car r i e d out these computations for the 28 X k matrix of data 40 Figure 4 Normal d i s t r i b u t i o n , divided into r i n t e r v a l s on (-«, +•») .; The propor-t i o n observed i n the i t h i n t e r v a l i s p^ , the i t h i n t e r v a l being given by 42 given i n Table IX , fi n d i n g scores x. , i = 1 to 28 and y , j = 1 to 4. These scores are l a b e l l e d "OPl-Score.s" i n Table IX. The Math 12 "OPl-Scores" are not too d i f f e r e n t from the "CCl Scores". The process of c a l c u l a t i n g the Math 100 "OPl, Scores" ensures that they are i n the correct order. The scores for groups 5 to 22 (corresponding to Math 100 marks of 30 to 58 out of 75) are close together, while the scores are -2 more spread out i n the t a i l s , p i s 0.30750. Thus i n t h i s method we assume that we are sampling from a normal d i s t r i b u t i o n . We assign to each category a score that depends on the proportion observed i n that category. II-6. Conclusions We sought a set of scores to use l a t e r i n the analysis of covariance of our data. Of the sets of scores we considered, the only ones that preserved the order of both the Math 100 and the Math 12 grades were the methods of sections.11—4 and .11-5. The method of section II-2 maximizes the c o r r e l a t i o n between the "2 two v a r i a b l e s . The maximum c o r r e l a t i o n squared obtained i s p = 0.36194. However the corresponding Math 100 scores do not have the desired monotone property. In section II-3 we regroup the data and f i n d scores corresponding to the maximum c o r r e l a t i o n for these revised data. The maximum c o r r e l a t i o n squared i s 0.34930, and the scores obtained do not preserve the natural order of the categories. In section II-5 we force the marginal d i s t r i b u t i o n s to be as nearly normal as possibl e , and assign scores corresponding to the proportion observed i n each category. The correlation-squared of the two va r i a b l e s using the scores obtained -2 ' • i n t h i s way i s p = 0.30750. The scores we s h a l l use are those of section II-4. Since the Math 100 marks 0 through 75 are meaningful (as opposed to simply being l a b e l s ) , i t i s not unreasonable to adopt them as a set of scores. The l o s s i n c o r r e l a t i o n using t h i s method versus using the method of section II—2 i s not too large ( /0.31393 = 0.56029 . versus /0.36194 = 0.60161 ), and the Math 12 grade-scores obtained are not very d i f f e r e n t from those found by maximizing the product-moment c o r r e l a t i o n . One reason for the d i f f i c u l t y i n obtaining scores which preserve the inherent order of the grades i s that we have "too many" Math 100 categories expressed i n terms of j u s t a few Math 12 grades. Even expressing twenty-eight scores as l i n e a r combinations of four.others did not help to preserve the ordering. Perhaps other regroupings of the Math 100 grades should be examined, to determine an optimal (in some sense) regrouping. It does seem, however, that with only four Math 12 grades we should not have too many more than four Math 100 grade-categories . As a f i n a l comment, we compare the Math 12 scores found by each method. Table X shows the approximate Math 100 grade corresponding to each Math 12 score. To form t h i s table, we take the assigned score for the Math 12 grade, look for (approximately) the same score i n the l i s t of Math 100 scores , and then look at the corresponding Math 100 grade out of 75. Notice that i n three cases out of four, B corresponds (approximately) to a Math 100 mark of 44-. out. of 75. I t turns out that the median Math 100 mark obtained by considering a l l students except dropouts i s 44.969. The mean for those students i s 44.534.

Introduction Now that we have selected a method of assigning numerical scores to our data, we can proceed with our analyses i n order to answer the questions of i n t e r e s t . We f i r s t l y want to know i f the students from the forty-nine schools perform equally well i n Math 100 at U.B.C. If not, we w i l l want to examine the e f f e c t s of semesterization type, textbook used and geometry background on students' Math 100 grades. Another question of i n t e r e s t i s whether the students from the honours sections had, on the average, higher grades i n Math 100 than students from the nonhonours sections. In t h i s chapter we use analysis of variance and analysis of covariance techniques.to examine the above questions. 47 III-2. I n i t i a l Analysis Our f i r s t question i s whether the i n d i v i d u a l schools are d i f f e r e n t with respect to the average of t h e i r students' Math 100 grades. Here we have our p schools, with n. students from the i t h school. Let n = / n. be the t o t a l number of students considered. Let v.. be the i = l J Math 100 score of the j t h student from the i t h school. The scores we use are those determined i n section II-4. The p populations of Math 100 grades are assumed to be normally d i s t r i b u t e d with equal variances. The observations are assumed to be independent.

For each of the p=49 "large " schools 48 we can average •the Math 100 scores of the students who went to U^B.C. from that school. In order to test whether these averages are the same for a l l forty-nine schools, we obtain the following analysis of variance table SOURCE OF SUMS OF MEAN VARIATION D.F.

Now that we are confident that there are differences i n the school averages, we want to see i f these differences are caused by some underlying variable. This leads us to investigate the effects of semesterization type, Math 12 textbook used, and geometry 10 background on student grades i n Math 100. I I I - 3 . A n a l y s i s of Variance In t h i s s e c t i o n , we w i l l consider one treatment ( e i t h e r semes-t e r i z a t i o n , textbook or geometry) at a time. Each treatment has three l e v e l s : f o r s e m e s t e r i z a t i o n , we consider unsemestered, single-sem-estered and double-semestered schools only ; f o r textbook we have the c l a s s i f i c a t i o n s U.A.A.-only, D o l c i a n i - o n l y , and Combinations/Others ; i n the case of geometry schools e i t h e r o f f e r e d geometry 10, d i d not o f f e r geometry 10, or we do not know.

Each student has a Math 100 score and a Math 12 score recorded. We assume that the treatments and schools are f i x e d e f f e c t s . "We want to see whether there are d i f f e r e n c e s among schools w i t h i n each treatment l e v e l , and whether there are d i f f e r e n c e s among the treatment means.

We conclude, therefore, that the b. schools o ' 1 within the i t h treatment l e v e l have different:average Math 100 scores, for i = 1, 2, 3. Consider f i r s t l y the sit u a t i o n where the semesterization types are the treatment l e v e l s . There are 20 unsemestered schools, 18 single-semestered schools and 11 double —semestered schools. The analysis of variance table i s shown i n Table XII . We accept at l e v e l of significance a=0.01 , and reject at a=0.05, the n u l l hypothesis of no differences between semester types. We reject at cx=0.01 the hypo-thesis of no differences among schools (within semesterization types). Thus the schools within any given semesterization type vary with respect to how the i r students did i n Math 100.- However even taking this into account, students from different types of semesterization backgrounds do not, on the average, perform equally well i n Math 100. When the treatments are textbook types, the analysis of variance table i s as i n Table X I I I . We consider the same 49 schools as we used to test-semesterization effects. We find here that at l e v e l of significance a=0.05, we reject both the n u l l hypothesis of no textbook effects and the n u l l hypothesis of no differences between schools (within textbook types) . Thus the three'(one for each textbook type) mean Math 100 scores (average of the scores for a l l the students within each textbook type) are s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t . Table XIV gives the analysis of variance table for testing geometry effects.

Analysis of Covariance The analyses of variance c a r r i e d out i n the l a s t section i n d i c a t e that based on grades achieved i n Math 100, there are differences among students from schools of d i f f e r e n t semesterization types, there are differences among students from schools which used d i f f e r e n t textbooks to teach Math 12 i n the 1976-77 school year, and there are no s i g n i f i c a n t differences among students with d i f f e r e n t geometry 10 backgrounds. Now there are some schools f o r which few students with low (say, C or C+) Math 12 grades were admitted to Math 100, while .there are other schools which had proportionately higher numbers of such students taking Math 100- at U.B.C. We w i l l use analysis of covariance techniques to eliminate the e f f e c t of students having d i f f e r e n t Math 12 grades, and then we w i l l examine any diff e r e n c e s between the treatment l e v e l s , f o r each of our three treatments.

We can then' informally decide "whether the regression c o e f f i c i e n t s are s u f f i c i e n t l y s i m i l a r to warrant proceeding" [10]. Once we are convinced that the assumption of equal slopes i s tenable, we continue with the analysis of covariance using MODEL C and examine, for each treatment type, the hypothesis H (2) there are no s i g n i f i c a n t differences between the average Math 100 scores of students from d i f f e r e n t schools (within each treatment l e v e l ) , and -H^' •* there are no s i g n i f i c a n t differences among the average Math 100 scores of students from the three treatment l e v e l s . The next three sections describe the r e s u l t s of applying the above analyses to our data. Section III-5 i s quite det a i l e d ; sections III-6 and III-7 follow the same sequence of steps and thus are not so d e t a i l e d . The r e s u l t s are discussed i n section III-8. 63 III-5. Semesterization As i n section III-3, we consider the 49 large schools, c l a s s i f i e d as unsemestered (20 schools, 452 students) , single-semestered (18 schools, 304 students ) or double-semestered (11 schools, 279 students). A t o t a l of 1035 students i s considered. We want to perform an^analysis of covariance on these data, using Math 100 score as the dependent v a r i a b l e and Math 12 score as the covariate, to i nvestigate the hypotheses and H^2^ described i n the preceding section. Our f i r s t step i s to convince ourselves that the assumption of equal within-semesterization-type regression l i n e slopes i s indeed tenable. We f i r s t carry out an informal slope t e s t where we do not d i s t i n -guish between schools. We have,the three semesterization l e v e l s , with students within each l e v e l . We perform an analysis of covariance and obtain the regression c o e f f i c i e n t s , weighted average and standard errors given below. There do not seem to be large differences between the re-gression c o e f f i c i e n t s . Treatment Level Regression C o e f f i c i e n t Standard Error Weighted Average 1. Unsemestered 0.558 0.039 0.578 2. Single-Semestered 0.585 0.046 3. Double-Semes tered 0.600 0.049 Suppose that we do group the students by school. Then within eadh semesterization type we can test whether the regression l i n e s for the scores of students from the schools within that semesterization type are p a r a l l e l . Secondly, we can test whether the within-semesterization-l e v e l regression l i n e s are p a r a l l e l . To test the f i r s t conjecture we c a l c u l a t e F - (28.91415D/46 = 1 - Q 2 2 3 > (576.107536)/937 which i s not s i g n i f i c a n t , even at l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e ct=0.1O. The numerator sum of squares i s the sum over the semesterization l e v e l s of the weighted sum over the schools of the c o e f f i c i e n t s for each school about t h e i r weighted mean. To test whether the within-semesterization-level regression l i n e s are p a r a l l e l , we compute F - (Q-342518)/2 = 0 > 2 7 8 5 ^ (576.107536)7937 . which i s not s i g n i f i c a n t , even at level.a=0.10 . The numerator sum of squares here i s the weighted sum of squares of the c o e f f i c i e n t s about t h e i r weighted mean. Thus we f e e l confident that the assumption of equal slopes across treatment l e v e l s i s tenable, and we proceed with the analysis of covariance using MODEL C. The analysis of covariance table i s reproduced i n Table XV. To test the equality of the average Math 100 scores f or students from the schools of each semesterization type, we look at the F-Ratio F=2.34'57 with (46,985) degress of freedom. This i s s i g n i f i c a n t even at l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e a=0.0001. To test we see that o F=14.8356 with (2,985) degrees of freedom, which i s s i g n i f i c a n t even at l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e a=0.0001. Thus we conclude that there are s i g n i f i c a n t d ifferences among the average Math 100 scores of students SOURCE OF VARIATION D.F. SUMS OF SQUARES MEAN SQUARES.

Textbook In t h i s section, we present the r e s u l t s of the analysis of covariance when the treatments are the d i f f e r e n t textbook categories. The f i r s t category i s 'U.A.A.-only',made up of 3 schools and 82 students. The second category i s ' D o l c i a n i - o n l y 1 , comprised of 40 schools or 801 students. Level three i s 'Combinations/Others' , which incorporates 6 schools (152 students). If we ignore school d i s t i n c t i o n and perform an analysis of covariance on the three groups of students, we f i n d regression coef-f i c i e n t s 0.610, 0.540, and 0.657(with standard errors 0.088, 0.029, and 0.069 respectively) which seem f a i r l y close. We. proceed to test for equality of slopes when schools are i d e n t i -f i e d . The y „ are computed, then averaged to obtain the y^. F - s t a t i s t i c s are computed to compare the c o e f f i c i e n t s , amd are found to be norisignifleant even at l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e a=0.10. Thus we can assume that the slopes i n the d i f f e r e n t treatment l e v e l s are equal. The analysis of covariance table appears i n Table XVII.

Geometry There were 27 schools that did not o f f e r a grade 10 geometry course i n the 1974-75 school year, 15 schools that did o f f e r a geometry 10 course, and 7 schools that either d i d not know or that had feeder schools so that some students did have geometry 10 and some did not. These categories accounted for 600, 305 and 130 students r e s p e c t i v e l y .

Discussion The students used i n the analyses of the preceding three sections were the 1035 students with f u l l data sets from t h e 4 9 large schools. R e c a l l that when we computed the Math 12 scores, we transformed them to have mean zero. S i m i l a r l y the o r i g i n a l Math 100 grades out of 75 were standardized to have mean zero. In order to compute those scores we used a l l 1524 students who had both a Math 12 grade and a (nonzero) Math 100 grade recorded. Now the 1035 students used i n the analyses of the preceding three sections had an average Math 100 score of 0.0592, corresponding to the grade 45.57 out of 75. Thus the average Math 100 grade for these students i s higher than the average grade f or the 1524 students. On the other hand, t h e i r average Math 12 grade-score was -0.0176, which i s les s than the average (for a l l 1524 students) of 0.0 . Consider the r e s u l t s of section III-5 on semesterization. In the analysis of covariance on the scores of students from schools nested within semesterization types, we f i n d that even at l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e (2) a=0.0001 we r e j e c t H q . This means that within a given semesterization type, the schools are d i f f e r e n t with respect to the average Math 100 scores of t h e i r students, even a f t e r taking into account the students' Math 12 grade-scores. We also r e j e c t at l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e a=0.0001. Thus the average Math 100 scores of students from the three semes-t e r i z a t i o n types are s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t . These two s i t u a t i o n s are i l l u s t r a t e d i n Figure 5. Consider f o r example the students from unsemestered schools. The average Math 100 and'.Math 12 scores are plotted i n Figure, 5, with the averages for un-semestered schools i d e n t i f i e d by c i r c l e s . Notice how spread out these c i r c l e s are with respect to both Math 100 and Math 12 average scores. 81 S i m i l a r l y the single-semestered and double-semestered schools vary widely with respect to the averages of t h e i r students' scores. Fur-thermore, when we compare the regression l i n e s of the three semester-i z a t i o n types we see that for a given average Math 12. score, the average Math 100 score of students from double-semestered schools seems to be higher than the average Math 100 score of students from single-semes-tered schools. We turn now to the textbook e f f e c t s , keeping i n mind the large differences i n numbers of students i n the d i f f e r e n t textbook categories. (2) At l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e a=0.0001 we r e j e c t H q . This we i n t e r p r e t as follows : consider textbook type i . Compute the average Math 100 score and the average Math 12 score of the students f o r each school of te x t -book type i . Then even i f two schools have the same average Math 12 score, they may have s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t Math 100 averages. We also r e j e c t H^"^ at l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e a=0.0001 for the tex t -book e f f e c t s . This means that average Math 100 scores of students from the three textbook categories are s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t . If we look at Figure 6, we see that for the same average Math 12 score, schools that used only the "Using Advance Algebra" text to teach Math 12 i n 1976-77 seem to have a lower average Math 100 score than schools that used D o l c i a n i only, or combinations of texts. We should remember that of the 1035 students that we have considered here, only 82 came from schools that used only U.A.A. Another question we.could have considered would have been to compare schools that used U.A.A. to schools that did not (thus we would have one category made up of Text Combinations l . , 2 . , 3 . , 5 . and 6. from Table V, and another category comprising the other Combinations). The categories that; we did use compare 82 schools that used only U.A.A. to schools that used only D o l c i a n i , and to schools that used combinations of texts. F i n a l l y we consider the geometry e f f e c t s . R e c a l l from Table XIX (2) that i n the analysis of covariance we rejected at l e v e l of s i g n i f -icance a=0.0001 , thereby concluding that even when we take into account the d i f f e r e n t Math 12 scores, the average Math 100 scores f o r schools w i t h i n geometry-background types are s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t . From Figure 7 we see the v a r i a b i l i t y with respect to both average Math 12 and average Math 100 scores for the schools within geometry-background category. In t h i s case, we accepted , even at l e v e l of s i g n i f i c a n c e a=0.20. That i s , we could not f i n d any s i g n i f i c a n t d ifferences among the average Math 100 scores of the students from the three geometry-back-ground categories. In Figure 7 the regression l i n e s seem nearly i d e n t i c a l , from which we conclude that on the average, students from the three geometry-background categories perform equally w e l l i n Math 100 when they have the same Math 12 score. , III-9. Interactions. The computer package UBC GENLIN {13] i s used to perform a three-way crossed c l a s s i f i c a t i o n with i n t e r a c t i o n analysis of covariance on our data. The three factors are semesterization, textbook and geometry-background, each at three l e v e l s . The covariate i s Math 12 grade-score, the dependent (yield) v a r i a b l e i s Math LOO score. In th i s a n a l y s i s , schools are not distinguished; rather, students from schools belonging to the same semesterization, textbook and geometry categories are lumped together. Table XXI shows the data organization used. The model we consider includes a l l two-way i n t e r a c t i o n s , as well as the three-way i n t e r a c t i o n . We can test f o r the s i g n i f i c a n c e of each of the i n t e r a c t i o n s , and for the equality of slopes i n c e r t a i n c e l l s . Since t h i s design i s unbalanced with some empty c e l l s , the degress of freedom w i l l have to.be adjusted accordingly. As we s h a l l see, there are so many empty c e l l s that we,cannot test the three-way i n t e r a c t i o n , nor can we test f o r the equality of slopes of the regression l i n e s i n the f i f t e e n nonempty c e l l s defined by the three-way crossed design.

Some properties of the maximal method are : 1. When a term i s judged s i g n i f i c a n t , there i s nothing else i n the f u l l model that could remove that s i g n i f i c a n c e . 2. If a term i s judged not s i g n i f i c a n t , i t could be because there i s another term i n the model that could explain away those differences that have been found, or i t could be that there are no di f f e r e n c e s . Thus an ANOVA table with no s i g n i f i c a n t e f f e c t s does not ne c e s s a r i l y mean there are no differences among c e l l means; i t could simply be due to the i n a b i l i t y to place the blame on any sing l e e f f e c t . The conservativeness of the method leads to no blame being placed. [13], 3.

If instead of looking at Math 100 l e t t e r grades we look at the actual marks out of 75, we f i n d that the 1473 nonhonours students have an average score of -0.0463 (44.05 out of 75) with standard deviation - ' 92 0.9804, and the students from honours sections have an average score of 3.4260 (64.24 out of 75) with a standard deviation of 0.5343. Let the pooled estimate of the variance be 4 2 = (49)(0.5343) 2.+ (1472)(0.9804) 2 /(1521) 2 that i s 4 = 0.9303. Let y be the mean Math 100 score for the students H from honours sections; l e t u be the mean score for nonhonours stu-dents.

Benzecri i s discussed, and an example of i t s a p p l i c a t i o n presented. Much of the material i n t h i s chapter follows the book by Lebart, Morineau and Tabart [18], and the paper by H i l l [15]. 94 IV-2. Geometric Representation c Suppose f i r s t l y that we are i n R , where the table N i s represented by r points. If the coordinates of these points are given by the raw data, i . e . by the n_^ _. , then there w i l l be some (highly populated) categories of v a r i a b l e A that w i l l have large-valued coordinates. S i m i l a r l y , there w i l l be some categories that have few observations, so that the corresponding points w i l l have a l l coordinates near zero. Now i t i s not an aim of our analysis to explain the d i f f e r i n g abundancies of the various categories. Thus rather than looking at the raw data, we consider the " p r o f i l e s " of v a r i a b l e A,namely the pro-portions of each category of v a r i a b l e B i n each category of v a r i a b l e A. This i s l i k e the co n d i t i o n a l p r o b a b i l i t y of belonging to category j of v a r i a b l e B, given membership i n category i of v a r i a b l e A. S i m i l a r l y , i n R we would consider the p r o f i l e s of v a r i a b l e B, which are the estimates of the p r o b a b i l i t y of being i n the i t h category of v a r i a b l e A, given membership i n the j t h category of v a r i a b l e B, i = l to r , j = l to c. Let the j t h component of the i t h vector (point) i n R° be n _ j / n _ > i = l to r points. In R , the i t h component of the j t h vector would be c n../n , . Notice that the table of new coordinates i n R i s not the r transpose of the new table i n R . We define the r e l a t i v e frequencies by f . . = n../n , with c r f. = J f.'. and f = y f . . . Then the c o n d i t i o n a l j = l J J i = l — 1 frequencies are given by f . . / f . (=n /n ) and f , . / f . (=n /n ) i j l • ' i j 1 • • i j .J i j .j for a l l i and j . In the geometric representation, we examine the data to see i f we can 95 f i n d c l u s t e r s of " s i m i l a r " or "close" points, or trends i n the data. We then see i f the existence of these trends or groups can be ex-plained by some underlying v a r i a b l e , be i t continuous(such as i n the case of some environmental or s o c i o l o g i c a l v a r i a b l e s ) , or d i s c r e t e ( i n which case we would have d i s t i n c t groups). We have chosen the p r o f i l e s (or c o n d i t i o n a l frequencies) to represent our data. We now need to define what we mean by the distance, between points. Let the distance between points (categories) i and i ' of v a r i a b l e A be d Z ( i , i ' ) ^ l~— 3=1. O c 1 ff.. f . , . \ 2 _ i l _ - i l l f. f., 1. 1 S i m i l a r l y ^ the distance between categories j and j ' of v a r i a b l e B i s . V i f f . . f . . , We choose t h i s distance because i t s a t i s f i e s the "equivalent d i s t r i -butions" property that i f we combine two categories of v a r i a b l e A (respectively, B) that have the same variable-B (respectively, -A) p r o f i l e s , then the distance between variable-B (respectively, -A) points i s unchanged. In other words, we do not lose much information by combining c e r t a i n c l a s s e s , nor do we gain much information by subdividing homogeneous clas s e s . c F i n a l l y we define the mass of the i t h point i n R to be c f-t (= 1 n ./n) . S i m i l a r l y we define the mass of the j t h point i n 1 ' j = l 1 3 r R to be f . (= j n../n ) . •3 • -. i'J J 1=1 J . Let F = {f..} be the r x c matrix of r e l a t i v e frequencies, l e t i j = diag {•£ } be the r x r diagonal matrix with i t h diagonal element f. , and l e t D = diag {f .} be the corresponding c x c matrix. The 1. c ,j c -1 coordinates of the r points i n R are given by the rows of D_ F. Let u be a vector such that U'D C = 1 • The r-vector v- of projections of the r points on the axis u can be written as v=D "ST) \ I . R e c a l l r c that we are looking at distances between p r o f i l e s , so as to gr a p h i c a l l y represent differences between p r o f i l e s . That i s , we want to maximize the weighted sums of squares of the proje c t i o n s , namely v'D^v , that i s U'D_ ^F'D_ > subject to U ' D C "^u ='1 . Introducing Lagrange m u l t i p l i e r s , the Lagrangian L i s L = u'D - 1F'D - 1FD _ 1 u - X(u*D - 1 u - 1 ) . c r c c Setting dL /3u equal to zero, we obtain D _ 1F'D - 1FD - 1 u - AD - 1 u = 0 . c r c c Premultiplying t h i s l a s t equation by D^ we see that u w i l l be an eigenvector of S , where S=F'D^ "^FD ""V , corresponding to the. largest eigenvalue A. The vector u i s c a l l e d the f i r s t f a c t o r i a l a x i s . The vector y=Dc \ i . , an eigenvector of S 1, i s c a l l e d the f i r s t f a c t o r . The projections on u are the components of the vector D_ ^FD_ "^ u , i . e . of the vector D "^Fy . Note that S={s,, ) where r j k r f f r i.1 i k s., _ J . J' i = l f. f ' I . ,k r For the corresponding analysis i n R , the f a c t o r i a l axis v i s an eigenvector of ;S^=FD TF'D^ "" , corresponding to the largest eigenvalue. Now from above, Su=Au can be written as F'D^ "^FD^ ^ u=Au . Premul t i p l y i n g t h i s expression by FI>c ^ , we obtain FD ^F'D _ 1 ( F D _ 1 u ) = A (FD - 1 u ) . c r c c Thus S and. S^have the same n o n t r i v i a l eigenvalues, and the components of each eigenvector f o r S are proportional to the weighted average.of the components of an eigenvector f o r . In order to s a t i s f y v'D^ ^v=l , we have that v=FDc ^ U / / A . . When projected on v, the c points have coordinates given by the components of "^ F'D^ \ r . x=D^ _ ^v i s the factor corresponding to the eigenvalue A. Notice that x=D _ 1v=D _ 1FD _ 1u//A = D _ 1Fy//A ; s i m i l a r l y y = D _ 1 F ' X / / A . That i r r c r 1 J J c the coordinates on a f a c t o r i a l axis i n one space are l i n e a r combinations of the components of the factor of : the other space, corresponding to the same eigenvalue. If we write x'=(x^, ... , x^) and .y'=(y^»••.,y c) then we obtain - i c f. . 1 V 3-J x- = — L — 1 / A r-i f • J (IV-1) 1 R 1 v i j y = .) — x, . /A i i i f 1 We represent a s o l u t i o n to the correspondence analysis of matrix F = ' t f 1 j } ' b v t h e t r i p l e (f\ , x , y ) IV-3. Alternate Representation : Incidence Data Consider again the r x e contingency table N= {n..}, with r c 1-' n= .T, y n.. .We can form the (r+c) x n incidence matrix A={a., } 3>1 , -. i j k l 3=1 associated with N as follows J.et a, ., = 1 i f the 1th i n d i v i d u a l has k l a t t r i b u t e k, and l e t a. . = 0 otherwise. Since each i n d i v i d u a l was k l o r i g i n a l l y described i n N by the two a t t r i b u t e s i t possessed (namely, the v a r i a b l e A category and the v a r i a b l e B category ) we see that each column i n A w i l l have exactly two l ' s and (r+c-2) zeroes. Correspondence analysis can be applied to A as a method of multidimensional s c a l i n g i n which we scale the rows and columns of A simultaneously. It turns out that correspondence analysis y i e l d s the same s o l u t i o n when applied to A as when applied to N. Let the scores assigned to the f i r s t r rows of A be x,, ... , x , -and the scores assigned to the 1 r l a s t c rows be y . In the s o l u t i o n , each column of A c o r r e s -ponding to an occurence of the a t t r i b u t e combination ( i , j ) w i l l have the same score, c a l l i t $ . I t follows from equation (IV-1) that i f p' i s an eigenvalue of A , then (IV-2) p'<(,.. = (x. +.y.) I 2 98 (IV-3) p . ^ . - J n *±/n±m 3=1 r (IV-4) p*y. = 1 xi.

General Rules for Interpretation Lebart, Morineau and Tabard [18J define two series of numbers, the absolute contributions and the r e l a t i v e c ontributions, corresponding to each f a c t o r i a l a x i s. The absolute c o n t r i b u t i o n of the i t h point i n R to the ath f a c t o r i a l axis i s defined to be CTR ( i ) = f. x } , a 1. a i where x . i s the score assigned to the i t h point with respect to the O i l . r ath a x i s . The above-mentioned authors use t h e i r geometric approach to correspondence analysis to show that the absolute c o n t r i b u t i o n shows the " r o l e played by a v a r i a b l e i n the variance explained by a f a c t o r " . c The r e l a t i v e c o n t r i b u t i o n of the i t h point i n R to the ath axis i s defined by , 0 COR ( i ) = (/A x . ) 2 a a ax f where A^ i s the eigenvalue corresponding to which the ath f a c t o r i a l axis was formed. Thus the r e l a t i v e contributions describe the "portion of the variance of a v a r i a b l e explained by a factor " . Thus, reason, Lebart,Morineau and Tabard, i f CTR^(i) i s low and COR^Cl) i s high, then point i does not enter g r e a t l y into the construc-t i o n of the ath axis ; however the ath axis explains a good deal of the variance of the i t h point. If CTR ( i ) i s high and COR ( i ) i s low, then a a -the i t h point contributes strongly to the ath a x i s . In R we can describe s i m i l a r quantities CTR (j) and COR ( i ) for • - a a the c points i n that space. If we consider correspondence analysis from the point of view of incidence data, then the axes that we f i n d f a l l into three categories 102 NODAL AXES. A nodum i s a set of rows and columns that go together to form a group. A nodal axis i s one with respect to which the data f a l l into separate groups. SERIAL AXES. With respect to s e r i a l axes, the data are spread out along the axes, not clustered into groups. An axis of s e r i a t i o n suggests an underlying trend rather than a c o l l e c t i o n of separate groups. POLYNOMIAL AXES. An axis i s said to be a polynomial axis i f i t i s an approximate polynomial i n one of the other axes. 103 IV-5. A p p l i c a t i o n . R e c a l l from Chapter II our methods of scoring, and the d i f f i -c u l t i e s we encountered i n obtaining a scoring system that preserved the order of the Math 100 grades. These problems are p a r t i a l l y caused by the large number of Math 100 grade categories r e l a t i v e to the number of Math 12 grade categories. We use correspondence anal-y s i s here to see i f there i s some other feature of the data that also contributes to the inconsistencies i n the scoring system. For example, we w i l l see i f there i s some underlying v a r i a b l e describing trends i n or c l u s t e r i n g of the grades. ' The way to use correspondence analysis to answer these questions i s as follows. Consider equations (IV-1) of t h i s chapter, and also equations (II-3) and (II-7) of Chapter I I . These equations are c i d e n t i c a l , with p 2 = X , since f . . / f . i s simply (n../n)/( Jn../n) i j !• IJ j = _ i J which i s equal to n../n. ; s i m i l a r l y f . ./f . = n../n ; . We s h a l l see that the scores obtained with correspondence analysis are, except for a scalar multiple, the same as the canonical scores we obtained e a r l i e r . Thus we can use the d i f f e r e n t point of view of correspondence analysis to see i f any c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s of the data are highlighted. To i l l u s t r a t e , we apply correspondence analysis to the data of Table XXVI.' The computer program used was written by N.

In Tables XXVIII and XXIX, the column C0R1 gives the r e l a t i v e c o n t r i b u t i o n of each point to the f i r s t a x is, while C0R2 gives the r e l a t i v e contributions to the second a x i s .

Figure 8 i s a reproduction of the p l o t produced by the correspond-ence analysis program. The h o r i z o n t a l axis represents the coordinate i n the f i r s t canonical v a r i a b l e , while the v e r t i c a l axis gives the scores 2//F. Notice that we have plotted the Math 100 scores and the Math 12 scores with respect to the same axes. As we saw i n Chapter I I , the Math 100 categories do not maintain t h e i r inherent order under t h i s scoring scheme. The c i r c l e d Math 100 class.numbers have QLT < 0.900 . The squared points have QLT =1.000 from Table XXVIII. When QLT =1.0000 t h i s means.that a l l of the variance of that point i s represented by these f i r s t two axes. If QLT < 0.900 then a f a i r l y large part of the variance of the point has not been explained by the f i r s t two axes.

There do riot appear to be any separate groups, except perhaps for the points {24,26,27,28} and. {1,2,3,4,5,8} , and possibly {20,21,22,23}. Consider f i r s t the Math 12 scores. With respect to the f i r s t axis <j>^ ,. C and C+ are quite close, B i s close to them, and A i s away o f f by i t s e l f . With respect to the second axis ^ , C+ and A are very close, while C and B are f a r from C+ & A, and from each other. When we look at <f>^ and <j> together, the parabolic shape of the graph i s emphasized, with C and C+ i n one t a i l , A i n the other and B hear the vertex. With respect to <f>^ we can not r e a d i l y d i s t i n g u i s h between C and C+ students. As w e l l , t h i s scoring system does not get much information from the B students (in that the score assigned to B students i s near zero). The near-zero score assigned to B can be p a r t i a l l y explained by looking at Table XXVI. Notice that i n the Math 100 categories num-bered 1 through 25 , there are always between 13 and 50 , and usually between 13 and 30, students with a B i n Math 12. It seems that the number of people receiving B grades does not help us very much to d i f f e r e n t i a t e between Math 100 categories. In other words, we f e e l that the Math 12 B grades are ambiguous i n that there are as many B students who get high Math 100 grades as those who get low Math 100 grades. Also we f i n d that C and C+ students are not e a s i l y d i s t i n g u i s h a b l e with respect to t h i s scoring scheme. Perhaps some sort of test should be administered to C+ and B students before they enter Math 100 i n order to more accurately assess t h e i r mathematical a b i l i t i e s . Points 20 to 23 as a group seem to be " i n the right place" - i . e . 110 CM or S r Cvi ra In rf> o IT) f o--9 I l l Figure 8 Plot of the scores f o r the categories of Math 100 grades, and of the Math 12 scores. The h o r i z o n t a l axis i s the score cb^ assigned with respect to the f i r s t canonical v a r i a b l e . The v e r t i c a l axis i s the score $2 corresponding to the second canonical v a r i a b l e . between the scores for group 19 and group 24 - however as i n d i v i d u a l s t h e i r order i s quite wild. A l l four points have QLT >0.848.. However i n each case, both the r e l a t i v e contribution and the absolute contribu-t i o n to the second axis are very small : never more than 3% and usually l e s s than 1%. The point 25 also has low contributions to the second a x i s . Point 25 seems to be out of sequence, e s p e c i a l l y i n com-parison to points 24 and 26, both of which have perfect q u a l i t y (QLT = 1.000) . If we r e f e r back to Table XXVI , "we see that the four points 20 to 23 represent Math 100 marks of 54 to 60, included i n which i s the mark 59 , which i s the borderline 1st Class - 2nd Class mark. The whole area described by points 9 through 17 i s also confused almost none of these points have high q u a l i t y (QLT <0.900 here; QLT < 0.500 sometimes ) . The mark 48.- borderline between Pass and 2nd Class - i s included i n c l a s s number 15. We see that a l l these points (except point 13) have r e l a t i v e l y high C0R2 values, and cor-respondingly lower C0R1 values. Thus the second ( v e r t i c a l ) axis explains a f a i r amount of the variance of these points; the h o r i z o n t a l axis explains l i t t l e of the variance of these points. Consider points 1,2 and 3. They are very s i m i l a r with respect to 1#F, C0R1, CTR1, 2//F, C0R2, CTR2 and even i n the o r i g i n a l count data of Table XXVI . Point 3 has perfect q u a l i t y . Point 7 i s out of order, at l e a s t with respect to cb^ . A c t u a l l y , point 7 has r e l a t i v e l y low q u a l i t y , with very small absolute contribu-tions to both axes. Point 6 seems out of place with respect to cf^ • Notice that these points are near the Math 100 Fail-Pass borderline mark of 37 out of 75. We combined the o r i g i n a l seventy-one Math 100 grade categories so that each Math 100 category would have enough students that the t h e o r e t i c a l c e l l frequencies would not be too small i f we wanted to 2 use x • "• One consequence of t h i s regrouping i s that the numbers of students i n the new grade categories are l e s s e r r a t i c than were the numbers i n the o r i g i n a l 71 Math 100 categories. One thing that seems to be showing up i n t h i s correspondence analysis i s i r r e g u l a r i t i e s near the Math 100 grade (1st Class, 2nd Class, Pass and F a i l ) borderlines. Points 14 to 18 contributed strongly to the second axis, but not too much to the f i r s t a x i s , leading to t h e i r order with respect to cj>^ being i n c o r r e c t . Thus i t appears that i t i s the extreme points - i . e . the high Math 100 grades and the low Math 100 grades - that are most important i n constructing the f i r s t a x is, while the middling grades -represented by points 7 to 23 - have low absolute contributions to t h i s axis. Notice that what distinguishes the extreme classes from the others i s larger numbers of students who received either A or C/C+ i n Math 12. IV-6. Conclusions One phenomenon which may be causing nonmonotone Math 100 scores i s that we express the scores f o r 28 Math 100 grade-categories i n terms of only 4 Math 12 scores. The correspondence analysis of t h i s chapter indicates another reason f o r nonmonotonicity, namely the e f f e c t s of having four Math 100 grades ( F a i l , Pass, 2nd Class and 1st Class) . There could also be an e f f e c t from not assigning c e r t a i n marks i n Math 100 - i n p a r t i c u l a r the between-grade marks of 37, 48 and 59. The seemingly uniform d i s t r i b u t i o n of the Math 12 B grades with respect to the Math 100 grades could also be causing problems, since we end up having l i t t l e information from those 546 B students, at l e a s t with respect to t h i s subdivision of the Math 100 marks. A B grade i s , of course, an "average" grade i n comparison to A and C grades which are "extreme" grades. R e c a l l the invariance property of the distance function used i n correspondence a n a l y s i s . If the Math 100 marks, that we combined to form a given cl a s s were the same with regards to Math 12.- p r o f i l e , then our r e s u l t s hold for t h e s i t u a t i o n where we do not combine any grade i . e . where we consider a l l 71 grade-categories. CHAPTER V CONCLUSIONS In t h i s thesis we have considered the records of students who r e g i s -tered at U.B.C. for the f i r s t time i n the 1977 f a l l term, including Math 100 as one of t h e i r courses. As f a r as possible we only considered those students who had taken a grade 12 mathematics course i n a B r i t i s h Columbia high school during the 1976-77 school year. In Chapter I we concluded that students who withdrew from Math 100 were (with respect to t h e i r Math 12 grades) l i k e students who f a i l e d Math 100. Below we compare the proportion of students who received each Math 12 grade for withdrawals and f a i l u r e s . Math 12 Grade •'. A B c+ C F a i l e d Math 100 6.9% 36,9% . 35.7% 20.6% Withdrew from Math 100. 9.3% 37.0% . 30.6% . 23.1% Math 100 teachers often f e e l that most students who withdraw from the course were having trouble with i t . . If students were dropping the course for other reasons,, then one might expect twenty-five percent each of' A, B, C+ and C students to-withdraw. However we see from the above table that t h i s i s not the case. On the other hand, the i n c l u s i o n of students who withdrew leads to problems i n assigning a Math 100 score. The method of assigning to 'A' students who withdrew the average Math 100 grade attained by 'A' students who f a i l e d i s p l a u s i b l e . However the small number of students involved leads to these scores-being based on a small number of students. 116 Furthermore, assignment of scores i n t h i s way would lead to problems i n the s i g n i f i c a n c e l e v e l s of our s t a t i s t i c a l t e s t s , because the assumption of the s t a t i s t i c a l independence of the students' Math 100 grades would be v i o l a t e d . We might well have included i n the study those students who withdrew from Math 100. However to be conservative, and i n order not to lose s i g n i f i c a n c e , we deleted the records of the 116 (representing 7% of the t o t a l ) students who dropped out of Math 100. Barnett and Lewis [3] also deleted withdrawals, which they f e e l "may well i n f l a t e the c o r r e l a t i o n due to the wider spectrum of talent that would r e s u l t from t h e i r i n c l u s i o n " (page 224). It i s i n t e r e s t i n g to see that although we did not include students who withdrew, our conclusions on the e f f e c t s of semesterization and textbook are the same as the conclusions drawn by Drs. Bluman and Hoechsmann [9], who did include students who withdrew. (However i n that study, scores were not assigned to the Math 100 or Math 12 grades. Instead a "Passed Math 100 / F a i l e d Math 100 " c r i t e r i o n was used.) We also deleted the records of students for whom no Math 12 grade was a v a i l a b l e . The average grade i n Math 100 for students whose records were included i n the study was almost 45 out of 75 (a passing grade i s 38 or higher). We have defined a " l a r g e " school to be one: with at least ten students s a t i s f y i n g the c r i t e r i a j u s t described. Representatives of these large schools.were contacted, and the schools were c l a s s i f i e d according to semesterization type, textbook used to teach Math 12, and grade 10 background i n geometry for t h e i r 1977 graduating c l a s s . P r i v a t e schools were discarded because i t has been suggested [4] that the performance of students from p r i v a t e schools i s not representative of that of s t u d e n t s from the en t i r e school population. There were then three semesterization categories : nnsemestered, single-semestered, and double-semestered. There were several textbooks used i n Math 12 classes throughout the various B.C. high schools, and these texts were grouped into three categories : Using Advanced Algebra only, D o l c i a n i only, and Combinations/Others. Some schools offered a geometry course that t h e i r 1977 graduates took i n grade 10 ; some schools.did not o f f e r such a course ; and other schools either do not have a grade 10 or else the representatives contacted at the schools did not. know i f the students had taken such a course. Thus schools were c l a s s i f i e d into one of three categories : 118 did not o f f e r geometry 10, did o f f e r geometry 10, or not sure. We selected from the large schools those student records which contained both a Math 12 grade and a Math 100 mark. Then the students were c l a s s i f i e d according to these two grades, the section of Math 100 i n which they r e g i s t e r e d , and the high school that they had attended, while each school was c l a s s i f i e d according to semesterization typej textbook used, and geometry background. The students were not i d e n t i f i e d by name, student number, age, sex, f a c u l t y at U.B.G., or any other v a r i a b l e s . However they were a l l at U.B.C. for the f i r s t year. The schools were not further i d e n t i f i e d by geographical region, average cla s s s i z e , or many other v a r i a b l e s . We next proceeded to scale the Math 12 l e t t e r grades ("accept-able" grades are A, B, C+ and C). We sought numerical scores for these grades i n order to see how they were related to each other. We simultaneously scaled the Math 100 number grades out of 75. Several methods of s c a l i n g were considered, f i r s t on the actual.number grades, and l a t e r on categories of grades formed by combining adjacent grades. We found that the method of canonical c o r r e l a t i o n s f a i l e d to preserve the natural ordering of the Math 100 grades. This i s probably due i n part to the f a c t that the number of categories we used i s much larger than the number of Math 12 grade categories. A correspondence analysis indicated that t h i s could also be a r e s u l t of the underlying Math 100 letter-grade categories, of which there are four, namely F a i l , Pass, 2nd Class and 1st Class. Not only did we have trouble maintaining the order of the Math 100 grade categories, we also encountered d i f f i c u l t i e s with the Math 12 grade scores. Now A and C are "extreme" grades, while B and C+ are . 1 1 9 "average" grades. Examination of the data for each school indicated that some schools do not l i k e to assign A's, and some schools assign few C's. Thus some B students are r e a l l y i n a sense A students, and some C+ are r e a l l y C students. Perhaps some sort of test should be administered to B and C+ students before they enter Math 100 i n order to better i d e n t i f y them as A, B, C+ or C students. (This v a r i a b i l i t y of the grades i s r e a l l y not that s u r p r i s i n g . Consider any four-grade system with A,B,C+ and C. Then a. good A student i s always an A student since there i s no higher grade. However a good B student may be an A student, and a poor B student may be a C+ student. Hence there i s inherently more v a r i a t i o n i n the middle two grades than i n the two boundary grades.) Ultimately we determined scores for the Math 100 grades by accepting these 71 (the grades 0,1,7,37 and 59 were assigned to no students) grades as being adequate as scores, then standardizing them to have mean zero and variance one. We then determined Math 12 letter-grade scores, which were computed i n order to maximize the product moment c o r r e l a t i o n . With th i s set of scores, we then proceeded to analyses of variance and c o v a r i -ance i n order to examine differences between schools with respect to the average scores obtained by t h e i r students in" Math 100 at U.B.C. We f i r s t l y performed an analysis of variance to test the equality of the average Math 100 scores of students from each of the 49 large schools that we used. Without considering Math 12 grades, we found that these school averages are indeed s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t . In our next analyses of variance, we concluded that there are s i g n i f i c a n t differences between average performance i n Math 100 of students from schools of each of the three semesterization types. We concluded that there are s i g n i f i c a n t differences i n the average Math 100 scores of students from each of the 120 three textbook categories. F i n a l l y we found that the average Math 100 scores of students from each of the three geometry-background categories are not s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t . Next we sought to remove any e f f e c t s caused by the d i f f e r e n t Math 12 grades that students had. It i s true that the average Math 12 score from some schools i s much lower than the average score for other schools. That i s , some schools send proportionately more Math 12 'C' students than other schools do. Since 'C' students cannot, i n general, be expected to perform as Well i n Math 100 as students who received an 'A' grade i n Math 12, we want to avoid "penalizing" schools whose students had, on the average, lower Math 12 scores. We c a r r i e d out three analyses of covariance, with students' Math 12 score as covariate. In the f i r s t analysis we concluded that there are s i g n i f i c a n t differences i n the average performance of students from the three semesterization types. We pl o t t e d the average Math 12 versus aver-age Math 100 scores for the students of each school. Schools were iden-t i f i e d by semesterization type, and regression l i n e s drawn (Figure 5).. It appears from that graph that of. students with a Math 12 grade of, for example, 'A', those from single-semestered schools do the worst i n terms of t h e i r Math 100 grades. In the second analysis of covariance, we concluded that there are s i g n i f i c a n t differences i n the average Math 100 scores of students from each of the three "textbook used i n Math 12" categories. However these categories were somewhat a r b i t r a r i l y determined, and there are very few students i n the "U.A.A. only" category, while over 75% of the students considered are i n the "Dolciani only" group, Nevertheless Figure 6 indicates that of students with a Math 12 grade of, for example, 'A', 121 those from schools that used Using Advanced Algebra as the only text i n Math 12 did the worst i n terms of t h e i r Math 100 grades. This r e s u l t i s corroborated by that of G.Bluman and K.Hoechsmann [9] who found that of s i x schools that used p r i m a r i l y U.A.A., one was "average" with respect to Math 100 performance, and f i v e were "below average". In the t h i r d analysis of covariance we considered the e f f e c t s of Geometry 10 background of the students. We concluded that there were no s i g n i f i c a n t differences i n the average Math 100 scores of students from the three "geometry-background" categories. This conclusion i s i l l u s -trated i n Figure 7 where the regression l i n e s are very s i m i l a r . [The old Geometry 10 course emphasized Euclidean (deductive) geometry which one might not expect to be d i r e c t l y relevant to Math 100 performance. The emphasis on geometry problems d i f f e r s s i g n i f i c a n t l y among the various Math 11 and Math 12 textbooks.] We also performed an analysis of covariance to see i f there were s i g n i f -icant i n t e r a c t i o n s between the three "treatments" of semesterization-type, Math 12 textbook used, and Geometry 10 background. For t h i s anal-y s i s we did not d i s t i n g u i s h among schools, u n i t i n g instead students from schools that were the same with respect to the three treatments. We found a l l two-way in t e r a c t i o n s to be s i g n i f i c a n t . For example, we conclude that the e f f e c t on Math 100 grade of geometry background varies with the textbook used i n Math 12, and the e f f e c t on Math 100 grade of the textbook used i s not the same for a l l l e v e l s of geometry background. Interpretation of the r e s u l t s of this analysis i s d i f f i c u l t because there are d i f f e r e n t numbers of students i n the twenty-seven c e l l s formed by the three-way crossed c l a s s i f i c a t i o n . In conclusion we sUggest that further studies be c a r r i e d out, including 122 withdrawals. As well i t would be i n t e r e s t i n g to do an analysis using only the four Math 100 grade categories (1st Class, 2nd Class, Pass and F a i l ) together with the four Math 12 grades. F i n a l l y a study of the se c t i o n / i n s t r u c t o r e f f e c t s might be c a r r i e d out for completeness. [Dr. G. Bluman did a feedback analysis (unpublished study) f o r the 1974-75 graduating class which used adjusted school grades for students i n each section. I t showed that marks did d i f f e r s i g n i f i c a n t l y from section to section. Taking into account section e f f e c t s , he adjusted the-Math 100 grades f o r each student. Using these adjusted Math 100 grades, he showed that the average Math 100 performance of students from large schools was not appreciably af f e c t e d by s e c t i o n a l d i f f e r e n c e s . This i s not s u r p r i s i n g : students from schools with ten or more students spread themselves among the approximately 40 sections, so that section e f f e c t s seemed to cancel out.] Nonetheless a d e t a i l e d study of section e f f e c t s should be undertaken. Other variables that could be examined are section s i z e i n Math 100, follow-up performance i n higher mathematics courses, geographical e f f e c t s , school s i z e , and fa c u l t y registered i n at U.B.C. -123 BIBLIOGRAPHY [1] Anderberg, M.R.

Title | A Statistical analysis of math 100 grades related to B.C. high school factors |
Creator |
McKeeman, Cheryl Ann |
Publisher | University of British Columbia |
Date Issued | 1978 |
Description | In this thesis we consider the records of students who graduated from British Cloumbia high schools, and who registered at U.B.C. for the first time in the 1977 fall term, including first-year calculus (Math 100) as one of their courses. Using canonical correlation techniques, we scale the Math 100 grades and the grade 12 mathematics grades. Other methods of multidimensional scaling are also considered. Analyses of variance are carried out to examine relationships between grade achieved in Math 100 and several-school factors, namely type of semesterization, Math 12 textbook, and geometry background for the 1976-77 high school graduating class. Then grade 12 mathematics grade is introduced as a covariate, and the above' analyses repeated. Finally the methods of correspondence analysis are described and an example of their application presented. |
