Schutz, P. A.; White, V. E.; Lanehart, S. L.
Journal of College Student Retention, v2 n1 p13-28 2000-2001
Thirty-nine students in an undergraduate educational psychology course identified and organized their core goals into ten goal domains. They then identified semester subgoals and tracked their time in relation to their goals. Results suggest that courses intended to increase student retention should use activities that help students identify their goals and examine the alignment of goals with time utilization. (DB)
