The research project is an investigation of why significant numbers of HE fulltime students withdraw before completion of their studies in an educational institution.
I wish an analysis of the only data that is available on students in the college and includes those who withdraw before completion, but at no time looks at retention. This data is obviously strictly confidential. It looks 13 student’s characteristics, inclusive of age, gender, marital status etc
I wish this data analysed using SPSS, for patterns and trends that would determine if a certain type of student is more likely to withdraw than another, or if particular courses and students within courses are at a greater risk of non completion and a comparison of those who withdrew and those who completed to identify any specific trends.
The data is available currently in EXCEL format. I would expect that not only will the report outline the different testing that was carried out on the data, but an explanation of these results would also be provided and supported where appropriate with tables, graphs etc
