Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. examine the difference in the influence of factors, such as extracurricular participation and self-concept/efficacy, on college enrollment rates of students with and without attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  2. to familiarize with predictors of college enrollment for high school graduates as potential targets for intervention.
  3. explore the relationship between self-concept/efficacy and extracurricular participation in predicting college enrollment for high school graduates.

Description

Can primary factors, such as extracurricular participation and self-concept/efficacy, be identified in predicting immediate college enrollment (ICE) of high school graduates? We provide results of a binary logistic regression of participants in the NCES High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (N = 7,590). Participation in extracurricular activities and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) status significantly predicts ICE. Differences in the influence of these factors on ICE rates of students with and without ADHD are explored.
