Engineering Persistence: Past, Present, and Future Factors and Gender Differences.
Jackson, Linda A.; And Others
Higher Education, v26 n2 p227-46 Sep 1993
A study of students formerly enrolled (n=198) and currently enrolled (n=282) in an undergraduate engineering program found that students' present characteristics and situations were more predictive of persistence than past or future factors; and few differences between men and women emerged. The best overall predictor of persistence was grade point average. (Author/MSE)
