John, David
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This report identifies student characteristics--demographic and life-stage factors--which influence successful completion of vocational education and training (VET) subjects. It finds the likelihood of passing is significantly reduced for people who are Indigenous, have a disability, are of non-English speaking background, are unemployed or are aged 19 years or less. The research is based on statistical analysis. Appended are: (1) Construction of analysis variables; (2) Logistic regression output and diagnostics; (3) Variable means of the student cohort; and (4) Predicted probabilities of passing. (Contains 8 tables.)
