Longitudinal Study of Drop-out and Continuing Students Who Attended the Pre-University Summer School at the University of Glasgow.
Walker, Lynn
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v18 n3 p217-33 May-Jun 1999
A two-year study of 57 nontraditional disadvantaged students in a preuniversity summer school found that success could not be predicted by family and educational background. Dropouts were less motivated and less suited to academic work and had poorer attitudes, whereas persisters were highly motivated and integrated into the institution. (SK)
