American Journal of Physics
written by Dale Long, Gerald McLaughlin, and Allan Bloom
We have studied the lecture course performance of approximately 2500 students enrolled in general physics over a five-year period to determine the influence of laboratory enrollment on lecture course performance. A statistical analysis showed the major determinants of lecture performance to be the SAT math score, overall grade average, and lab enrollment, with a significant interaction between overall grade average and lab enrollment. The results show that grades of good and poor students were influenced very little, while those of intermediate students were helped significantly by concurrent lab enrollment.
