Variations in Patterns of Persistence
written by Adan E. Vela, Jacquelyn J. Chini, Alexander Bakaey, and Joseph Walsh
Despite improved college accessibility, female students continue to be underrepresented in physics, mathematics, and computer science. More so, the gender gap widens from enrollment to graduation as female students transition out of the majors more frequently than men. While there exist several theoretical frameworks modeling persistence and retention, a common theme amongst them involves the process by which students respond to challenges. Accordingly, this research explores the responses of students to academic performance within their major and overall curriculum. In particular, this study makes use of mathematical models to explore differences in persistence at a large state institution according to academic performance within their major, overall technical curriculum, and non-technical course work. This research represents a contribution over prior works that limited consider to overall GPA when analyzing retention.
