A Longitudinal Comparison of the Academic, Affective, and Personal Characteristics of Persisters and Nonpersisters in Teacher Preparation.
Pigge, Fred L.; Marso, Ronald N.
Journal of Experimental Education, v61 n1 p19-26 Fall 1992
Studied whether differences exist among academic, affective, and personal characteristics of teacher education persisters and nonpersisters in a longitudinal sample of 550 education majors. Five years later, 65% had persisted through teacher training. Factors predicting persistence (i.e., higher college grade point average and positive attitude toward teaching) are discussed. (SLD)
