Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Rusen Meylani and Dawn Teuscher
This study establishes a theoretical framework for predicting the American College Testing (ACT) Mathematics sub-score and AP Calculus AB and BC scores from the Precalculus Concept Assessment (PCA) exam results and suggests a total of 16 different regression based models to actually perform the prediction. The strong positive correlation between the actual and predicted values confirm that the PCA is a powerful tool for identifying students who are at the risk of not passing AP Calculus AB or BC tests and thus helping teachers, parents and students take the necessary measures in a timely manner.
