Predicting Dropout in Adult Basic Education Using Interaction Effects among School and Nonschool Variables.
Garrison, D. R.
Adult Education Quarterly, v36 n1 p25-38 Fall 1985
Explores the effect of course relevancy and goal clarity, in concert with psychosocial variables, upon persistence/dropout. The interaction of scholastic ability and course relevancy added to the discrimination of persisters and dropouts. A self-confidence and ideal self discrepancy variable was also shown to be a good discriminator of persistence and dropout. (Author/CT)
