Research in Higher Education, v36 n3 p303-22 Jun 1995
A study examined attitudes, cognitive and noncognitive experiences, and transfer-related behaviors of 277 nontraditional-age Hispanic students graduating from a community college. Measures were developed for family concerns, encouragement, social and academic integration, English skills, and educational and institutional commitments. Variables found significant in Hispanic student transfer were mathematics ability, academic achievement, and intent to transfer. (Author/MSE)
