Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of suspension in Mathematics and English achievement among the students at Sequoia Transition High School.

The major aspects of methodology used in this study were collected from material culture of student grades for the.period of September 2004 to January 2005. Fifty one students were researched on several different points of interest based upon suspension frequency, grade level, gender, and average of four consecutive interim and marking period grade point scores.

A summary of the data was compiled. Computerized statistical calculations were used to determine the relevancy of English and Mathematics achievement scores as related to occurrence of suspension. These results were analyzed and presented in respect to the research statement.

The results of the study indicated that there was no significant correlation between suspension and achievement in the disciplines of English and Mathematics.
