Sublett, Cameron – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
The discrepancy in the empirical literature surrounding distance education (DE) coursetaking among community college students has led to the online paradox, where short-term or more proximal academic outcomes associated with DE coursetaking are negative, but the long-term or distal academic outcomes are positive. Importantly, no previous study has…

Shelton, Robert; Lovell, Elyse D'nn – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Reading and conducting research can initially feel daunting for community college students. For this nontraditional aged, first generation student-researcher, the interest in research increased with the availability of TEDx Talks. The overall intent of the study was to evaluate the empathetic reactivity of students (n = 78) while viewing a…

Huerta, Margarita; Garza, Tiberio; García, Hugo A. – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Community colleges are increasingly important places for language minority students to access higher education. Unfortunately, this group of students is the least likely to persist in terms of re-enrollment, degree completion, or transfer to four-year institutions. In this study, we used structured equation modeling with a sample of 10,637…

Caton, Jazmin M. – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
The research and practice surrounding student service members/veterans has evolved over several decades. With a regeneration of veteran students' enrollment, a need for increased attention to this special student population continues to be an institutional priority, especially for community colleges. The literature suggests that while greater…

This study uses nationally representative longitudinal data and propensity score modeling to evaluate the effects of first-year engagement experiences at community college--including social and academic contact with faculty and participation in study groups and clubs--on achievement, persistence, degree attainment, and vertical transfer. Speaking…

Wang, Xueli; Lee, Seo Young – Review of Higher Education, 2019
We investigated the psychometric properties of six latent factors in a new survey instrument measuring factors related to transfer in STEM from 2-year to 4-year institutions: initial attitudes toward math, initial attitudes toward science, self-efficacy in math, self-efficacy in science, active learning, and transfer-oriented interaction. We…

Watanabe-Rose, Mari; Guy, G. Michael – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2019
Much research has demonstrated an inverse relationship between appointment delay and one-shot appointment-keeping behavior. In the present study, we investigated whether such relationship is observed with recurrent behavior, such as class attendance and retention within a college course. When a 4-week remedial arithmetic course at an urban…

Cohen, Richard; Kelly, Angela M. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
This study explored science, mathematics, and general academic factors that predicted outcomes for community college students (N = 3052) in a regional institution. A binary logistic regression was performed to determine significant independent variables contributing to successful outcomes (graduation or transfer) vs. non-completion. Transcript…

Zientek, Linda Reichwein; Fong, Carlton J.; Phelps, Julie M. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
The need to improve student success in community colleges has resulted in a growing interest in developmental mathematics. Yet there remains a need to understand the motivations and beliefs of developmental mathematics students in order to cultivate their success. Self-efficacy has been identified to be a predictor of student success. Little is…

McMurray, Stephen – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
This article explores the impact of funding cuts to the Further Education colleges in Scotland. The reduction in the number of students in the colleges has been hugely politically controversial. The research utilised the Infact database on the Scottish Funding Council's website and also a literature review. The research found there had been a…

Cohen, Richard; Kelly, Angela M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Community colleges educate nearly half of all students who complete postsecondary degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. For many matriculated students, chemistry is a required gatekeeping course for postsecondary retention and advancement in STEM majors. This research explored community college student…

Roberts, Lindsay; Welsh, Megan E.; Dudek, Brittany – College & Research Libraries, 2019
Studies of transfer student success abound in higher education, yet few studies examine the role that academic libraries play in students' transitions. This study explores the academic library services offered to transfer students in Colorado through a survey of librarians. What are barriers to offering these services? How do library professionals…

Woods, Chenoa S.; Park, Toby; Hu, Shouping; Bertrand Jones, Tamara – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Academic underpreparedness is an issue for many first-time-in-college students, particularly those entering community colleges. Whereas many underprepared students enroll in developmental education, research has indicated that traditional remediation may not increase students' chances for success. Therefore, states and colleges have begun to…
