Nontraditional Students in Community Colleges and the Model of College Outcomes for Adults
Philibert, Nanette; Allen, Jeff; Elleven, Russell
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n8 p582-596 Aug 2008
The purpose of this study was to examine three components of Donaldson and Graham's (1999) model of college outcomes for adults: (a) Prior Experience & Personal Biographies, (b) the Connecting Classroom, and (c) Life-World Environment. The study was also to assess the application of these components to traditional and nontraditional students in community colleges in both technical and nontechnical courses. This study found that nontraditional students vary from traditional students in regards to the three model constructs. A post hoc descriptive discriminate analysis determined that the Life-World Environment component contributed the most to group differences with the minimally nontraditional group scoring the highest on this construct.
