The Impact of Dunkirk High School Technology Education on Overall Student Report Card Grades.Wright Jr., Steven R. (2014)This study’s focus was to identify whether or not Dunkirk high school technology courses had an impact on overall student report card grades. This research was conducted using the report card grades of roughly 600 students at Dunkirk High School in Dunkirk, NY. The data was collected through access of the schools computer software E-School. The report card scores were grouped into two groups: students who took technology education classes and students who did not take technology education classes. The mean averages of both groups’ report card grades were calculated, and used to determine whether technology courses had an impact on overall student report card scores. The results indicate that students who were enrolled in technology education courses scored higher on their final report card compared to students who were not enrolled in technology classes.
