Can the Distance Education Student Progress (DESP) Inventory Be Used as A Tool To Predict Attrition in Distance Education?
Thompson, Eileen
Higher Education Research & Development, v18 n1 p77-84 Apr 1999
Examined the extent to which subscales and scales developed from the Distance Education Student Progress (DESP) Inventory (D. Kember and others, 1995) were associated with attrition and persistence of 258 external students in the Bachelor of Education Program at an Australian university. Discriminant analysis of 15 factors of the DESP Inventory correctly classified 73% of withdrawing and continuing students. (SLD)
