Taube, Sylvia R.; Taube, Paul M.
Journal of Vocational and Technical Education, v8 n1 p35-45 Fall 1991
Analysis of data on 101 entering proprietary college students found that (1) predictors of initial achievement were entrance exam scores, gender, race, age, grade point average, and expectations; (2) dropout predictors were marital status, work hours, prior achievement, absences, and faculty interaction; and (3) age, gender, race, and children did not affect probability of dropping out.
