The Influence of Time-Limitations, Faculty, and Peer Relationships on Adult Student Learning: A Causal Model.
Lundberg, Carol A.
Journal of Higher Education, v74 n6 p665-88 Nov-Dec 2003
Using data from 4,644 undergraduates, this study tested a causal model identifying the effects of social integration, age, and time-limiting characteristics on adult student learning. Survey results indicated that educationally related peer relationships were the strongest predictors of gains for all students. Time limitations hindered learning for younger students but not for student ages 30 and older. (SM)
