Impact of Learning Communities on Retention at a Metropolitan University.
Baker, Stephanie; Pomerantz, Norleen
Journal of College Student Retention, v2 n2 p115-26 2000-2001
Evaluated effects on college freshmen attending Northern Kentucky University of a learning community (LC) program which simply clustered three courses without thematic linkage or integration. Comparison with non-LC students found the LC students had higher grade point averages, earned more hours, were more satisfied with their college experiences, and were less likely to be placed on academic probation.
