After Transfer: The Engagement of Community College Students at a Four-Year Collegiate Institution
Ishitani, Terry T.; McKitrick, Sean A.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v34 n7 p576-594 2010
This study investigated how educational experiences between community college transfer students and native students differed at a four-year institution. The study sample included groups of native students and community college transfer students, who were further divided by timing of matriculation to the study institution. Benchmarks from National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) were used to assess the levels of students' collegiate experiences. After controlling for various explanatory variables, timing of matriculation to the senior institution showed significant differences in student engagement. Moreover, enrollment status, such as full- and part-time presented the largest effects on the levels of students' educational involvement regardless of student type. (Contains 4 tables.)
