College Student Success: A Qualitative Modeling Approach
Wirth, Ralph Mario; Padilla, Raymond V.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n9 p688-711 Sep 2008
This qualitative study highlighted student perspectives on barriers to success at a community college located in a south Texas city. The study examined barriers to student success, the knowledge that successful students possess to overcome the barriers, and the actions that successful students undertake to overcome the barriers. Padilla's (2004) theoretical framework and methods for modeling student success provided the conceptual framework for the study. The data analysis resulted in the development of a local student success model and an implementation model for student services at the subject campus. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
