Institution

Morehead State University

Abstract

Given that Caucasian students score higher on tests (ACT, Praxis I, Praxis II) and are admitted to teacher education programs at a higher rate than minority students, this study will examine possible variables contributing to success or failure to be admitted to teacher education programs such as grades, study habits, major selected, mentoring programs, MSUCorp, degrees of their parents, admission criteria, and perseverance. We will be using data collected via Tk20, student information systems, Praxis examination scores, teacher education program admission and exit data, and self report surveys.
