Abstract

Purpose. The primary purpose of this study was to determine if the Multicultural Educational Enrichment (MEE) Program aided in improving the ACT scores of the participants during the 1998 and 1999 school year. This segment of the MEE Program was designed to assist high school students in the Metropolitan Nashville Davidson County School System with academic reinforcement to assure that they score 19 or higher on the ACT examination for admission into an institution of higher learning within the State of Tennessee. These students were at risk of not being accepted into an institution of higher learning or if accepted, were at risk of not getting a scholarship due to low scores on the ACT assessment examination. A low ACT score is a contributing factor to a student's inability to be accepted into an institution of higher learning and, thereby, impedes their future. ^
