Title: A meta-analysis of demographic characteristics and learning by deaf students
Author: Fabich, Megan
Abstract: This study is designed to identify those educational, communication and demographic characteristics which serve as predictors of student performance on college entrance exams as well as their comprehension learning via interpreted lectures at the college level. A database was created for 509 deaf students using information from 33 different demographic areas. A series of statistical analyses including multiple regressions were performed, none of which yielded statistically significant findings, despite their considerable power. These results indicate that deaf students' academic success is not pre-determined by anyone characteristic or combination of easily identifiable characteristics.
