dc.description.abstract This study analyzed factors that may increase pass rates on the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE). Four research questions were analyzed: (a) What are students' perceptions regarding the effectiveness of preparation that may contribute to passing the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE), (b) Do preintervention programs affect student achievement on high school exit exams, (c) Do intervention programs have an effect on passage rates of students who fail the first administration of a high school exit exam, and (d) How much of student performance on the CAHSEE can be explained by the following variables: gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, advanced level courses, years of teaching, CST scores, and parent education level? This study collected and analyzed data from 6 high schools in California that were located in rural, suburban, and urban counties. Data was collected and analyzed from the 2010 and 2011 administrations of the CAHSEE. Discrepancies in pass rates were identified between minorities, English language learners (ELLs), and Special Education (SPED) students, a result that was broadly consistent with the theory of Social Darwinism. en_US
