How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
While the literature on postsecondary student success identifies important academic and social factors associated with student outcomes, one question that persists concerns the influence of financial aid. We use the National Student Clearinghouse’s StudentTracker service to develop a more complete model of student success that accommodates opportun...
Current definitions of retention and graduation rates distort the picture of student success by limiting it to completion of a degree at the institution of entry. By incorporating data from the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), a clearer picture emerges. The NSC data captures retention and graduation at both entry and transfer institutions. To...
Although Minnesota's overall supply of primary care physicians is as good as or better than that of many other states, Minnesotans in some rural and urban communities do not have ready access to primary care. Simply training more doctors using the current model is not a viable solution to this problem. In order to increase the supply of primary car...
The main goal of the study was to examine the relationship of student use of campus recreation facilities (CRF) on GPA, persistence, and graduation rates at a large, public, Midwestern Carnegie Doctoral-extensive university. Tinto's theory of student departure provides the conceptual framework and an extensive review of the literature on the relati...
In this article, we discuss how donor and recipient characteristics affected the incidence and timing of political action committee (PAC) contributions to incumbent members of the U.S. House of Representatives during the 1993-94 election cycle. We contribute to the campaign finance literature by modeling the timing of contributions, which is import...
The goal of the study was to develop a practical application to help a large doctoral research extensive public university promote student athlete success by identifying at-risk student athletes. A longitudinal model using survival analysis was used to identify factors that impact a student athlete's ability to persist and graduate.
