A RECAPITULATION OF -- STUDENT DROPOUTS IN THE DIVISION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA, SPRING SEMESTER, 1967.
LOUTTIT, EDGAR E.
A HIGH DROPOUT RATE BETWEEN THE SPRING AND FALL SEMESTERS OF 1967 AT THE DIVISION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA, PROMPTED THIS STUDY TO DETERMINE THE REASONS FOR WITHDRAWAL. THE STUDY POPULATION WAS LIMITED TO ON CAMPUS SPRING SEMESTER ENROLLEES SEEKING UNIVERSITY CREDIT. A 16 QUESTION SURVEY QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO 1,090 DROPOUTS, 304 OF WHOM RETURNED USABLE QUESTIONNAIRES. THE MAIN REASONS REPORTED FOR WITHDRAWAL WERE LACK OF DESIRED COURSES, TRANSFER TO DAY CLASSES, ACCOMPLISHMENT OF EDUCATIONAL GOALS, EMPLOYMENT INTERFERING WITH ENROLLMENT, AND MOVEMENT FROM THE COMMUNITY. HOWEVER, DESPITE USE OF A RANDOM SAMPLING TECHNIQUE, THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY WERE JUDGED INCONCLUSIVE BECAUSE OF AN INSUFFICIENT NUMBER OF RESPONSES. (CONCLUSIONS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND FINDINGS CONCERNING THE POPULATION AND METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY WERE DISCUSSED.) (LY)
