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…

Heller, Monica L.; Cassady, Jerrell C. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2017
The current study explored the differential influences that behavioral learning strategies (i.e., cognitive-metacognitive, resource management), motivational profiles, and academic anxiety appraisals have on college-level learners in two unique learning contexts. Using multivariate analysis of variance and discriminant analysis, the study first…

Yu, Hongwei – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2017
Student retention has garnered increased attentions in higher education. Drawing from various theoretical perspectives, researchers have developed multiple theoretical models to explain or predict student retention. Most models, however, were intended for traditional aged, full-time students at 4-year colleges or universities. The rapid growth of…

Kiser, Michelle; Hammer, Emily E. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2016
This article contributes to the literature addressing the needs of increasing student enrollment and retention across university campuses by identifying programs where progress can be made to improve the student retention rate and increase university enrollment. This article derives from a provisional program that began in the fall of 2009 at a…

Davidson, J. Cody – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2016
Mathematics is the most common subject area of remedial need and the majority of remedial math students never pass a college-level credit-bearing math class. The majorities of studies that investigate this phenomenon are conducted at community colleges and use some type of regression model; however, none have used a continuation ratio model. The…

Ozaki, C. Casey – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2016
This qualitative study explored the external and internal reasons involved in students' decisions to return to college after an extended absence. Specifically, it sought to explore the role of students' concepts of who they might be (or want to avoid becoming) in the college and career domains of their lives, their possible selves. Analysis of…

Latz, Amanda O. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2015
Because it has been noted that a more educated workforce is necessary to meet the demands of the future workplace, community colleges have experienced significant pressures to generate more graduates. High instances of attrition and low rates of credential obtainment among students, however, have historically been tenuous issues for community…

Wood, J. Luke; Harris, Frank, III – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2015
The purpose of this study was to understand the relationship (if any) between college selection factors and persistence for Black and Latino males in the community college. Using data derived from the Educational Longitudinal Study, backwards stepwise logistic regression models were developed for both groups. Findings are contextualized in light…

Hillstock, Laurie G.; Havice, Pamela A. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2014
This study explored pre- and post-admission characteristics of retained first-year students enrolled in non-proximal distance learning programs within public, 2-year colleges. Five pre-admission and six post-admission characteristics were explored. The sample for this study consisted of 197 first-year students enrolled in non-proximal distance…

Russo-Gleicher, Rosalie J. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2014
This article provides qualitative insights into addressing the issue of student retention in online classes in higher education. Semi-structured, in-depth interviews were conducted at random with 16 faculty who teach online courses at a large community college in the Northeast about how to improve online student retention. Qualitative analysis…

Davidson, Cody; Wilson, Kristin – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2013
The purpose of this article is to trace the development of the Tinto framework for student integration and to critically analyze the application of the framework with nontraditional student populations. Specifically, the terms "academic" and "social integration" have become synonymous with student retention and, by extension,…

Hachey, Alyse C.; Wladis, Claire W.; Conway, Katherine M. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2013
Open access is central to the Community College mission. For this reason, any restriction in online enrollments should not be undertaken lightly. This study uses institutional data gathered from a large, urban community college to examine a policy aimed at increasing student retention in online courses by restricting those eligible to enroll based…

Tinto, Vincent – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2013
Success in college is built upon classroom success, but success in the classroom does not in itself ensure college completion. Completion arises from success in a sequence of classes one after another over time. It does so most frequently when students are presented with coherent course pathways to degree completion, are able to gain degree credit…

Karp, Melinda Mechur; Hughes, Katherine L.; O'Gara, Lauren – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2011
Tinto's integration framework is often assumed to be inapplicable to the study of student persistence at community colleges because one of the linchpins of the framework--social integration--is considered unlikely to occur for students at these institutions. Community college students are thought to lack the time to participate in activities, such…

Bahr, Peter Riley – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2011
Recent research on mathematics remediation in community colleges indicates that there are large differences in the rate of successful remediation between students of differing levels of initial math deficiency. One might presume that these "skill gaps" in successful remediation are a result of differing rates of student retention. That…
