Braxton, John M.; Milem, Jeffrey F.; Sullivan, Anna Shaw
Journal of Higher Education, v71 n5 p569-90 Sep-Oct 2000

Path analysis results of three surveys of 718 first-time, full-time, first-year students at a highly selective private research university found that active learning exerts statistically reliable influences on social integration, subsequent institutional commitment, and intent to return.
