  • Values are n no. of students (with %total for a given category in parentheses). P values are for χ2 analysis. Note: The total overall numbers differ between sex and final course grade since students can only be counted once for their sex (sex total, n = 1,150); however, if students were enrolled in more than one course under study, they would have a grade for each course in which they were enrolled (final course grade total n = 2,299).
