High school course-taking patterns of reclassified fluent English proficient students

The purpose of this longitudinal quantitative research study was to examine the end-point trajectories of Reclassified Fluent English Proficient (RFEP) high school graduates. This study has been designed to identify the rates of successful completion of the Board of Regents 15 A-G requirements to gain admission to the California State University or University of California system among RFEP high school graduates. The pattern of RFEP student placement into the CSU Expository Reading and Writing course was identified as the 12th grade end-point trajectory. Meanwhile, only two Latina female participants were placed in Advanced Placement English courses based upon the sample.
