Predictors of First-Year Retention in a Community College
Mertes, Scott J.; Hoover, Richard E.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v38 n7 p651-660 2014
Retention is a complex issue of great importance to community colleges. Several retention models have been developed to help explain this phenomenon. However, these models typically have used four-year college and university environments to build their foundations. Several researchers have attempted to identify predictor variables using statistical analysis. This study attempts to replicate some of these previous studies and build on them by including additional variables and cross-sectional techniques to study the potential of shifting trends.
