Selecting Interventions That Succeed: Navigating through Retention Literature
Arendale, David
NADE Digest, v1 n2 p1-7 Fall 2005
Many developmental educators have been assigned increased responsibilities for campus-wide enrollment management activities. A new system is needed for educators to more accurately sort through the rapidly growing database of information related to student retention. This will enable the reader to more quickly identify promising practices for further investigation. This article provides a scale to evaluate the likelihood of success among potential programs and identify them for further research. Scrutiny of potential retention programs must be increased by asking more questions early in the investigation process regarding: essential components of a program, research evaluation studies, barriers to successful implementation, and the availability of technical assistance to enable other institutions to successfully adapt and adopt the student retention practice.
