Description

We studied the relationship between students that took the Exploring Life general science course (SCI110) and how those students performed in Human Biology (BIO120). Analysis showed that success (passing with a C or better) in the Exploring Life course predicted success (passing with a C or better) in Human Biology some of the time, lending some support to the argument that the Exploring Life course should be instituted as a requirement prior to taking the Human Biology course. In contrast, when you look at all grades, there seems to be no strong association between the two courses (r2=0.3) We also found no strong association between Accuplacer exam score and performance in SCI110 or BIO120.
