Attrition in the State of Nebraska. Recommendations for a Statewide Study of Student Attrition Among Nebraska Postsecondary Educational Institutions: Issues, Goals, Research Design, Timetable and Cost Estimate.
Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education, Lincoln.
Issues related to student attrition in the three Nebraska postsecondary systems are described and an assessment of their implications is offered. Other purposes of the report are to: review statewide goals that could be adopted to reduce student attrition; present a research design that describes how an in-depth attrition study should be conducted; and propose a time table and cost estimate for completing a study of student attrition. The three public postsecondary educational systems considered are the University of Nebraska, the Nebraska State Colleges, and the Nebraska Technical/Community Colleges. The proposed attrition study has the potential for a broader scope that could include both public and independent sectors of postsecondary education. (SW)
