Abstract

A quantitative study was conducted to examine the various factors that impact the completion rate of students enrolled in the Learning Support program in Georgia colleges and universities. The study was conducted to examine possible relationships between prior level of academic preparedness, quality of supplemental services, extent and use of supplemental services, and student achievement motivation, and the Compass pass rate. A purposeful sample of students from two institutions were used for the study utilizing a survey indicating a significant relationship between prior level of academic preparedness, quality of supplemental services, and student achievement motivation and the Compass pass rate. Despite the negative correlation concerning the extent and use of supplemental services it is recommended that an assessment be conducted to ascertain the level of importance in regards to the student completion rate on the Compass test.
