Strategies for Improving Retention of Community College Students in the Sciences
Lloyd, Patrick M.; Eckhardt, Ronald A.
Science Educator, v19 n1 p33-41 Spr 2010
Almost one half of U.S. students receiving B.S. and M.S. science degrees attend community colleges during their academic careers, yet for the large majority of community college students in the sciences, a four-year degree in a STEM discipline remains an unrealized goal. The authors describe methods intended to improve student learning, retention, and graduation rates of community college students in the sciences. (Contains 2 tables and 4 figures.)
