The Prediction of Voluntary Withdrawals from College: An Unsolved Problem.
Bianchi, John R.; Bean, Andrew G.
Journal of Experimental Education, v49 n1 p29-33 Fall 1980
The utility of personality measures as predictors of voluntary withdrawal from college was investigated. Four criterion groups were formed: high-achieving persisters and withdrawals, and low-achieving persisters and withdrawals. Two significant discriminant functions were found and interpreted as academic aptitude and social immaturity. (Author/GK)
