The Transfer Velocity Project: A Comprehensive Look at the Transfer Function
Hayward, Craig
Journal of Applied Research in the Community College, v18 n2 p21-32 Spr 2011
The 1999-2000 Transfer Velocity Project (TVP) cohort of 147,207 community college students is used to develop both a college-level endogenous model, appropriate for applied research and guidance for campus action, and a student-level model. Survival analysis (Cox regression) is employed to evaluate the relative contribution of 53 student-level characteristics to the transfer outcome. Results suggest practical interventions for enhancing the transfer function such as encouraging the completion of the associate degree en route to transfer as well as enhancing institutional transfer culture by, for example, fully staffing campus-based transfer centers. Discussion focuses on the identification of transfer-facilitating characteristics, the strengths and weaknesses of the current research, suggestions for future research, and practical approaches to facilitating transfer. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
