Empirical Transition Matrices. Educational Planning Occasional Papers No. 6/71.
Tracz, G. S.; O'Mahony, J. T.
This monograph is concerned with the uses to which an individualized student information system could be put for obtaining valuable insights into the progress of a variety of students through the educational system. In chapter 1, the concepts and terminology required for an understanding of transition matrixes are introduced, and a mathematical derivation of the basic flow equations and their matrix formulations is provided. Chapter 2 contains a numerical example of the applications of empirical transition matrix methods to the flows within two Ontario colleges of applied arts and technology, and chapter 3 discusses the benefits, limitations, and possible extensions of the method.
