Abstract

The test-optional movement in the United States generates the need for creative solutions in advising general education courses (e.g., writing, reading, mathematics, etc.). The authors used pattern analysis and statistical modeling to identify antecedents of success for the Educational Testing Service Proficiency Profile assessment. The core skills areas for the ETS Proficiency Profile are reading, writing, mathematics, and critical thinking. The focus of the research includes pattern analysis of general education courses taken by students that increased their scores between the first year and third year assessments. Other factors such as, but not limited to, gender, distance from home, and discipline of study are included. The practical implication of the results indicates a sequence of courses that provide the most growth in students’ proficiency of core skills.
