Self-Regulated Learning and Ethnic/Racial Variables: Predicting Minority First-Generation College Students' Persistence
Moore, John S., III.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Rhode Island
The purpose of this study was to investigate how self-regulated learning and ethnic/racial variables predict minority first-generation college student persistence and related constructs. Participants were drawn nationally from the U.S. Department of Education funded TRiO Student Support Services Programs. Additional participants from the Talent Development program and General Psychology classes from the University of Rhode Island were also included if they were first-generation college students. Preliminary analyses of group differences based on minority status revealed few significant differences in self-regulated learning, ethnic/racial, and college persistence variables. Hierarchical regression analyses indicated that academic self-efficacy, program use, and race rejection sensitivity were the strongest predictors of minority first-generation college students' persistence. Implications for practice, study limitations, and directions for future research are also discussed. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
