RÉSUMÉ

This study explored nontraditional associating factors for the accruement of mathematical skills during the first year of college, including the role of factors pertaining to academic and social involvement, student study behavior, student perceptions of the quality of teaching, financial support, and awareness of prejudice. This model employed a unique formula for the calculation of math gain that controlled for ceiling effects and nonlinearity. A nationally representative sample of first-year college students was tested by both gender and ethnicity. Although many of the factors tested contributed to math gains for the entire sample, there were many marked differences when analyzed by gender or ethnicity.
