The Influence of Academic, Cultural, and Social Factors on the Matriculation of Latina/o Students in Higher Education
Belasco, Elizabeth Mathison
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Texas State University - San Marcos
Bayesian statistical inference within structural equation modeling was used to examine the influence of hypothetical constructs on the successful persistence of college freshmen to degree completion. The affects of three latent variables: (a) academic capital; (b) cultural capital; and, (c) social capital were compared between White/Caucasian students and Latina/o students. The regression of social capital on cultural capital produces a statistically significant difference between the two groups of students, and produced a moderate effect size.
