Academic and Social Integration of Community College Students: A Case Study.
Borglum, Karen; Kubala, Thomas
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v24 n7 p567-576 Aug 2000
Investigates how Tinto's model of retention can be applied to two-year institutions. Explores academic and social integration and their effects on student withdrawal rates as well as the effect of background skills on withdrawal rates. Finds no correlation between academic and social integration and withdrawal rates, but poorer Computer Placement Test performance means students are more likely to withdraw from courses. (VWC)
