Abstract or Summary
  • Rural students have lagged behind non-rural students in matriculation into higher education, as well as in completion of four-year degrees. The current studies sought to investigate academic readiness, academic performance, and psychological differences between rural and non-rural students at Oregon State University. Rural and non-rural students were compared during spring term of the 2014-2015 academic year, as well as during the fall term of the 2015-2016 academic year. No significant differences were observed between rural and non-rural students' levels of academic readiness prior to entering Oregon State University, nor their academic performance in introductory-level psychology courses. The only psychological difference observed between rural and non-rural students concerned grit; a measure of one's ability to persist through hardship in completion of a goal. Implications of these findings on future research and interventions are discussed.

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Thanks for making the revision to add the page numbers for the actual thesis, but page numbers are back with the running header starting with the TABLE OF CONTENTS (Continued) page 7 through the end of the pretext pages showing page 10. If you need help with the page numbering and can email me two separate documents, one for the pretext pages and one for the actual thesis, I can convert them into one PDF using Adobe Pro without affecting the page numbering and email it back to you. Everything else looks good. Once revised, log back into ScholarsArchive and go to the upload page. Replace the attached file with the revised file and resubmit. Thanks, Julie on 2016-06-30T18:32:02Z (GMT)

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Thanks for making all the revisions to the pretext pages, it looks good now. Rejecting because the actual thesis is missing the pages numbers except for page 1. Once revised, log back into ScholarsArchive and go to the upload page. Replace the attached file with the revised file and resubmit. Thanks, Julie on 2016-06-29T15:22:26Z (GMT)

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Rejecting for the following reasons - 1) Title page, change the commencement date on the bottom to read - Commencement June 2017 2) On the Table of Contents (Continued) thru the List of Appendices are page numbers 7-10 and the running header in the top left corner. Pretext pages do not have page numbers so remove the page numbers and running header on these pages. Everything else looks good. Once revised, log back into ScholarsArchive and go to the upload page. Replace the attached file with the revised PDF and resubmit. Thanks, Julie on 2016-06-27T19:59:34Z (GMT)
