WP8 Sub Report - What Works in Student Retention?
ATTACT WP8 Student retention working group decided to test the effectiveness of the instrument in European context in spring 2011. The application of the questionnaire by the WP8 group was authorized by the ACT Company for the 2010 questionnaire version.
Being a North American instrument the questionnaire had some contingencies in its direct application to the European context, such as different higher education systems, different school contexts and different student populations. However, the interest of ATTRACT WP8 group was to test how this tool helps for instance, in trying to find common retention practices and factors among the WP8 partners, take notice and be aware of new and different retention practices; and reflect on how many of the practices be implemented and with what outcomes. This report sums up the results of this exploratory study.
