Abstract:In this work the particularities of the profile of students who enter the Online Learning Institute, INSTAL, to the virtual educational program "Your high school in 4 months" to take the one national exam that would grant them their high school accreditation are analyzed and compared. With the information obtained from the initial survey that is applied in the induction course and that for this study was answered by 3,478 students over a year, we were able to determine variables to study them and analyze the individual and family characteristics of the students to determine the differences among them according to the secondary school of origin.
The objective of this study is to identify and analyze the individual and family characteristics, habits and school performance of INSTAL students, according to their secondary school of origin.
The results found showed that there are significant differences between students who studied secondary in a public school and those who studied in a private school. At INSTAL, most of the students come from public secondary schools, however, we found that it is the graduates of private schools who identify this educational program as a viable option to obtain their high school certificate. At the end of their preparation, INSTAL students take the national exam. More than 86% pass the exam and earn their high school diploma.
