Adult Students in Higher Education: Burden or Boom?
Richardson, John T. E.; King, Estelle
Journal of Higher Education, v69 n1 p65-88 Jan-Feb 1998
Disputes the common stereotype that adult students are less effective and less successful as students because they are adults. Finds no evidence in the literature that they lack the skills for effective study, experience learning difficulties because of age-related impairment in intellectual capabilities, or perform less well academically than younger students.
