An Explanation of Practice: Why Students Withdraw from a Bridging Education Programme.
Rudge, Nicola
New Zealand Journal of Adult Learning, v27 n2 p56-70 Oct 1999
A problem-based methodology was used to explore why three students withdrew from a transition to postsecondary education program. The method treats dropout as students' solution to a problem and investigates their problem-solving processes, beliefs, motivations, and contextual conditions. For two students, withdrawal was a habitual response to stressful situations. (SK)
