An Evaluation of Three Basic Designs for Studying Attrition.
Terenzini, Patrick T.
Journal of College Student Personnel, v21 n3 p257-63 May 1980
Possible methods of student attrition research are the autopsy or retrospective study, the longitudinal study and the cross sectional study. The autopsy study is least valuable but can be effective when modified and combined with the other two, depending on the resources of the college. (JAC)
