The dependent variable for this study was pass/fail on each portion of the AHSGE. Logistic regression also allows for the use of both ordinal and continuous independent variables.
Regression results indicated that the overall model of predictors was not reliable in distinguishing between pass and fail on the AHSGE reading portion.
Regression results indicated that the overall model of predictors was reliable in distinguishing between pass and fail on the AHSGE language portion.
Regression results indicated that the overall model of predictors was not reliable in distinguishing between pass and fail on the AHSGE social studies portion The model correctly classified 70.8% of the cases.
Results indicated that the model generated for the reading portion was not effective in predicting the pass/fail outcome on the AHSGE (p = .06); however, probabilities indicated that students were more likely to pass the reading portion having taken more agricultural classes.
The overall passing rate for the language portion of the AHSGE was 38% in the systems.
The overall passing rate for the mathematics portion of the AHSGE was 32% in the systems.
The overall passing rate for the social studies portion of the AHSGE was 51% in the systems.
The overall passing rate for the biology portion of the AHSGE was 72% in the systems.

One would think that students who are enrolled in a curriculum so saturated in biology principles would fare well on a biology test such as the biology section of the AHSGE, however; the results indicated that there was no statistically significant relationship between passing the biology portion of the AHSGE and number of agriculture classes taken.
