Using a Model that Predicts Individual Student Attrition to Intervene with Those Who Are Most at Risk
Miller, Thomas E.; Tyree, Tracy M.
College and University, v84 n3 p12-19 Win 2009
This article describes a continuing project at the University of South Florida that was first presented in the 83(2) issue of "College and University" (Miller 2007) and further detailed in the 83(3) (Miller and Herreid 2008). Through that point the project had established a predictive formula for determining the risk of attrition of individual students. In this piece, the authors will describe how the University used the research results to intervene with individual students at greatest risk of dropping out with the ultimate goal of improving the rate of student success and persistence.
