THE TERRANOVA MATHEMATICS TEST AS A PREDICTOR FOR GRADES IN ALGEBRA I
 Date Issued:
 2003
 Abstract/Description:
 Examined in this investigation was the use of scores from the TerraNova mathematics test, part of the TerraNova Multiple Assessments battery, to predict grades in high school algebra. The TerraNova mathematics percentile rankings and semester grades for 116 Algebra I students over a 3year period at a Department of Defense Overseas School in Iceland were obtained. The dependent variable was semester grades in Algebra I and the independent variable was TerraNova mathematics percentile rankings. A correlational analysis and a regression analysis were performed to determine whether the TerraNova mathematics test could be used as a predictor of grades in Algebra I. A statistically significant correlation for all 3 years was found. Subsequently, through the regression analysis it was indicated that TerraNova mathematics test scores did predict grades in Algebra I.
