Science Research

“...shows initiative”

Meghan Harmening, Class of 2016

Hometown: Marshall, Minn.
Majors: Corporate Mathematics and Finance/Banking
Research title: “Acing the ACT: A Comparative Analysis between ACT Scores and Academic Achievement”

“When conducting research by comparing BVU graduates’ final GPAs to their ACT scores, I was able to preliminarily conclude that composite ACT scores are a significant predictor of final college GPAs rather than individual ACT scores such as reading, English, math, or science. In the end, I found several paths that could lead to further research – such as looking at data from a larger university. The fact that I've conducted my own research really shows initiative that some other students may not have.”
