Dropouts and Budgets: A Test of a Dropout Reduction Model among Students in Israeli Higher Education
Bar-Am, Ran; Arar, Osama
European Journal of Educational Research, v6 n2 p123-134 2017
This article deals with the problem of student dropout during the first year in a higher education institution. To date, no model on a budget has been developed and tested to prevent dropout among Engineering Students. This case study was conducted among first-year students taking evening classes in two practical engineering colleges in Israel. There are three dimensions of the dropout reduction model: social support, institutional support and personal commitment. The results of the intervention had a positive effect on all three dimensions.
