Factors in college persistence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A discriminant analysis of 7 variables for 1st-year college persistence, achievement, and sex. The 1st function weighted heavily the College Qualification test, Michigan State University Reading Test, Test of Critical Thinking, and a social status score from parents' education and father's occupation. The 2nd function is interpreted as a cultural sex function. Inventory of Belief, Differential Values inventory, and Rokeach's Dogmatism Scale show minimal weighting.
