An Empirical Analysis of Factors Affecting Honors Program Completion Rates
Savage, Hallie; Raehsler, Rod D.; Fiedor, Joseph
Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, v15 n1 p115-128 Spr-Sum 2014
One of the most important issues in any educational environment is identifying factors that promote academic success. A plethora of research on such factors exists across most academic fields, involving a wide range of student demographics, and the definition of student success varies across the range of studies published. The analysis in this paper follows the emphasis of McKay, K. (2009), on the importance of conducting repeated research on student completion of honors programs at different universities for different time periods. This paper uses a probit regression analysis as well as the logit regression analysis employed by McKay in order to determine predictors of student success in the honors program at a small, public university, thus attempting to answer McKay's call for a greater understanding of honors students and factors influencing their success.
