HERNANDEZ URALDE, Jorge; MARQUEZ JIMENEZ, Alejandro  and  PALOMAR LEVER, Joaquina. Factors associated with academic performance on EXANI-I. Mexico City Metropolitan Area 1996-2000. RMIE [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.29, pp.547-581. ISSN 1405-6666.

The purpose of this research was to discover the degree of variation in the test results of five classes that have taken the national high school admissions examination (Examen Nacional de Ingreso a la Educación Media Superior—EXANI-I) in the Mexico City metropolitan area. Also studied was the influence of diverse socioeconomic and educational variables. The data corresponded to the total population evaluated (between 229 thousand and 260 thousand individuals), analyzed with tools of descriptive statistics and correlation analysis. The results showed that parents’ schooling, the family income, the type of secondary school of origin and the grade point average obtained in junior high school are the variables that have the most important relationship with the students’ performance levels on the examination.

Keywords : admissions tests; junior high school education; scholastic achievement; socioeconomic factors; scholastic trajectory; Mexico.
