dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine whether selected independent variables are good predictors of athletic participation among Mexican students. The selected independent variables were gender, GPA, attendance, discipline referrals, and success on the Georgia High School Graduation Test. The dependent variable was participation in athletics. The participants of this study were Mexican students in the 11th and 12th grade at Southeast Whitfield High School in Dalton Georgia. The data were collected from the Whitfield County student information system, which is called Infinite Campus. Permission was obtained from students as well as their parents before the data were collected and analyzed for the purpose of this study. The original hypothesis was that each one of the five independent variables would have a relationship with athletic participation that would make it an effective predictor. However, after the data were analyzed in SPSS using a logistic regression, only four of them were found to be significant. Of the five independent variables, gender, attendance, discipline referrals were found to be significant and, as a result, supported the hypothesis of the study.en_US
