Choosing and Leaving Science in Highly Selective Institutions.
Strenta, A. Christopher; And Others
Research in Higher Education, v35 n5 p513-47 Oct 1994
A study investigated causes of initial interest in and attrition from natural sciences and engineering among 5,320 students entering 4 highly selective institutions in 1988, with attention to probable causes of disproportionate attrition of women. Reasons for high attrition were based on cognitive variables or the perceived "chilly" climate of science instruction. (MSE)
