Using Enrollment Data to Predict Retention Rate
Bingham, Melissa A.; Solverson, Natalie Walleser
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n1 p51-64 2016
First- to second-year retention rates are one metric reported by colleges and universities to convey institutional success to a variety of external constituents. But how much of a retention rate is institutional inputs, and how much can be understood by examining student inputs? The authors utilize multi-year, multi-institutional data to examine differences in predicted and observed retention rates at a mid-size, selective, comprehensive public university in the Midwest.
