Determinant factors to drop out and reasons for students who chose ELT as a second option to stay

This section describes the analysis of the questionnaire applied to the group of students who dropped. This group was formed by the participants who did not conclude their studies in ELT bachelor. The main goal was to discover the main reasons that made them make a final decision on their higher education status and the table below shows a pattern of each response of the students who dropped out. The analysis of the questionnaire was also structured following key question: (1) main reasons to drop out (2) likelihood to stay (3) possible factors for dropping out. In order to analyze the data, we read carefully the responses each of the participants wrote. We divided the patterns to make a better analysis and take it under a drop-out-factor category, we finally took into account the patterns that stood out the most and placed them in a table. The participants’ responses are summarized below in table 2.

Vocational students' intention to drop out in flanders: The role of teacher beliefs

Vocational students' intention to drop out in flanders: The role of teacher beliefs

For decades, western education confronts the important problem of student unqualified dropout (Lamb, Markussen, Teese, Sandberg & Polesel, 2011). In Flanders, on average 10% to 15% (even more in the cities) of the students in secondary education leave the school prematurely, without any qualification (Van Landeghem, De Fraine, Gielen & Van Damme, 2013). Moreover, dropout is most prevalent in vocational education, making these students most at risk (Flanders: Van Landeghem & Van Damme, 2011; the Netherlands: van Uden, Ritzen & Pieters, 2014; Turkey: Tas, Selvitopu, Bora, & Demirkaya, 2013). A Turkish study (Tas et al., 2013) found that most vocational students drop out because of academic factors, such as grade retention, and social factors, such as gender or SES. In general, most research into predictors of students’ attrition has been focusing on individual student features, most notably these socio-demographic and academic risk factors (De Witte, Cabus, Thyssen, Groot & Maassen van den Brink, 2013), turning dropout into an individual problem (Luyten, Bosker, Dekkers & Derks, 2003). Relatively little empirical research concentrated on school characteristics, and in particular research into the role teachers might play in students’ decision to quit school is rather scarce. However, most dropouts in the Turkish study also pointed to the attitudes and behavior of the teachers, stating that teachers were unfair in their practices (Tas et al., 2013). However, dropouts’ perceptions might be shaped after they have left school (see Worrell & Hale, 2001). Moreover, the negative feelings about school might bias students’ views about their teachers, and as such might not inform on teachers’ actual role in the dropout process (Van Houtte, 2011). Therefore a measure that is not obtained from students, but reported by the teachers themselves, like for instance teachers’ expectancies or beliefs about their students, might give a more accurate grip on the teachers’ impact. To our knowledge, the possible direct influence of teachers’ beliefs has rarely been considered in dropping-out research (exception: Rumberger & Palardy, 2005). However, as teacher beliefs affect both student-teacher relationships and student engagement (Demanet & Van Houtte, 2012)—the latter being considered the primary factor in understanding and predicting high school dropout (Fall & Roberts, 2012; Finn, 1989)—, it is not too far-fetched to hypothesize an effect of teacher beliefs on students’ (intention to) dropout.

Drug induced liver injury secondary to interferon beta (IFN β) in multiple sclerosis

Drug induced liver injury secondary to interferon beta (IFN β) in multiple sclerosis

Baseline aminotransferases were normal. Following a cu- mulative dose of 70.4 µg of IFN β -1a (8 doses) the patient developed low grade fever and was noted to have ALT 230 IU/mL and AST 81 IU/mL. Concomitant medications included ibuprofen 400-800 mg daily for the week prior to presentation and levothryoxine for longstanding hy- pothyroidism. All medications were stopped at this time point. The AST and ALT increased to a peak of ALT 914 IU/mL and AST 301 IU/mL, 21 days following cessation of therapy. Viral and autoimmune serology was negative and serum IgG was 1,109 mg/dL. A liver biopsy was per- formed one week after the peak abnormal aminotrans- ferases revealing moderate lobular inflammation with centrivenular hepatocyte drop out and prominent pigment filled Kupfer cells indicative of a healing acute hepatitis injury (Figure 2). The patient was commenced on pred- nisone 60 mg for 2 weeks followed by a taper to 0 mg over 4 weeks and had a rapid improvement of her ami- notransferases.

WHY DO BENEFICIARIES LEAVE THE SAFETY NET IN MEXICO? : A STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF CONDITIONALITY ON DROPOUTS

WHY DO BENEFICIARIES LEAVE THE SAFETY NET IN MEXICO? : A STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF CONDITIONALITY ON DROPOUTS

including household wealth, households with a higher dependency ratio and greater house- hold size have lower odds of dropping out, indi- cating that the composition of the household influences whether a household remains in the program. Larger households potentially receive more money, but because of the cap on total funds, having more than two children eligible for the education grant does not increase pay- ment. On the contrary, there is some concern that these households may be more likely to drop out because of the greater burden of con- ditions that require all household members to receive check-ups, but the results indicate that this concern is unfounded. Similar to the results for recipient employment, beneficiaries who re- ceive private transfers from family members (mostly remittances) are more likely to leave the program. This may be because they have less of a need for Oportunidades transfers, and prefer to substitute an unconditional transfer for a conditional one. The result, however, runs contrary to the evidence that Oportunidades does not crowd out remittances (Teruel & Davis, 2000), so the variable may be simply an indicator of households that have greater opportunities through migration. Those that were receiving public assistance from the gov- ernment before Oportunidades, however, are less likely to drop out. Since those receiving such assistance are likely to be the extreme poor, this result provides evidence that the poor remain in the program.

Determinants in university desertion and graduation: an application using duration models

Determinants in university desertion and graduation: an application using duration models

The first group of explanatory variables refers to the education and previous orientation of the individual before beginning university studies. When controlling for unobservable heterogeneity (Model 2), the variables related to the type of secondary school attended by the student are significant to explain the differences in the risk of desertion. The results indicate that graduates from national schools 21 are four times more likely to drop out than graduates from schools that are dependant upon the university, given that everything else remains constant. This may reflect that there is a difference in the quality of previous education. A lesser preparation at the secondary level may force the student to make a much greater personal effort during the first period at the university.

Factores predisponentes de abandono temprano en estudiantes de Medicina    Predisposing factors of student drop-out early in the career of Medicine

Factores predisponentes de abandono temprano en estudiantes de Medicina Predisposing factors of student drop-out early in the career of Medicine

S tudent early drop out is a common problem often caused by poor career counseling and motivational aspects. To determine the factors or aspects that predispose to it, is carried out a study of cases (N = 391) and controls (N = 782) ratio of 1:2 including freshmen of the cohorts 2010, 2012 and 2013, of the career of medicine of the Faculty of Medical Sciences of the University of San Carlos of Guatemala (Usac), who had deserted from the Faculty the following year for his first assignment. It is considered demographic, academics, family, labor, health and motivational factors, studying the most important in defection. The results indicate that the educational level of the parents (OR 1.4 CI 1.07 – 1.83), religion (OR 1.65 CI 1.03 – 2.66) and the fact to perform a paid work si- multaneously with the studies (OR 1.49 CI 1.03 – 2.14), besides the final results in the courses of Chemistry (OR 7.54 CI 5.56 – 10.24), Physics (OR 6.74 CI 4.88 – 9.32), Biology (OR 6.86 CI 5.09 – 9.23) and Psychology (OR 5.92 CI 4.38 – 8.01), are factors that predispose the student to dropout from school (p < 0.05). Actions had been taken into consideration to prevent the repetition of these academic subjects and thereby avoid early abandonment from the School Medicine and to keep closely monitoring of the students who will enroll in the coming years and that show or present the above risk factors in order to prevent the students from leaving.

Drag-shield drop tower residual acceleration optimisation

Drag-shield drop tower residual acceleration optimisation

An alternative con fi guration, based on using a vacuum between the platform and the drag-shield is proposed. The authors believe that future designs with this con fi guration should be developed as the expected residual acceleration would be very low and could be used in higher drop towers. Drop towers higher than 30 m usually have the vacuum in the whole tower to reach the microgravity environment ( Lekan 1989, Mori et al 1993, Von Kampen et al 2006 ) , which supposes a high operative cost that would be saved with the proposed con fi guration.

Análisis del drop en baloncesto a través del estudio de los tiros libres

This study analyzed the performance of the basketball players in free throw shooting made in the last minute of the game, in close games (score-line less than 2 points) during 4 seasons in ACB league. Through a descriptive analysis and the creation of contingency tables, it is shown a decrease of player performance during the last minute and last row of free throws of the game, respect to its overall performance. This drop in performance was mainly observed in centers, under 31 years old, under 13 years of professional experience, and winning at score-line. What allows to extract relevant information for the planning of training and manage this kind of critical moments during a basketball game.

Sndrome de Burn out Univs

Sndrome de Burn out Univs

Las personas mas afectadas por el síndrome de burn out son aquellas relacionadas al equipo de salud, encontrándose en la población de Córdoba, según los resultados de nuestras encuestas, un 29,03% presenta un alto grado de cansancio emocional y despersonalización, y sólo el 41,93% ha alcanzado un alto nivel con respecto a su realización personal. Esta alta incidencia esta relacionada con el íntimo contacto que estos profesionales tienen constantemente con el sufrimiento, el dolor y la angustia de sus pacientes, la sobrecarga laboral y la baja remuneración salarial en el sistema publico de salud, la cada vez más inquietante amenaza de sufrir juicios por mala praxis y el planteo de dilemas éticos resultantes de las nuevas tecnologías.

Out of focus

Out of focus

A nivel de diseño, me llevo muchos recur- sos e ideas de todas estas propuestas. OUT OF FOCUS abraza buena parte de estas originales formas expresivas pero sin llegar a un tratamiento del todo exper- imental. De hecho, una de sus prioridades es la de comunicar de forma acesible su mensaje. Busca el equilibrio entre un estilo sofisticado y a la vez robusto, lo que equivaldría al contraste entre un grito y un susurro. De aquí salen muchos más combi- naciones de conceptos, uno de ellos seria el hacer convivir modernidad y tradición. Me gustaría acabar hablando sobre las sutilezas que enriquecen mucho los men- sajes. En el caso de las funciones tipográ- ficas, me sorprendió la decisión tomada por The Gentlewoman de sólo presentar debajo del retrato el nombre de la persona conocida en minúsculas y sin apellido. Tales características refuerzan la idea de proximidad e informalidad, sin parecer que sea un fallo ortográfico. Además, de todas las analizadas, su elección tipográfica se desmarca por el uso de una moder- na geométrica que a la vez confirma su identidad. En el caso de RAR, también me gustaría recordar su portada tomándolo de referente para destacar a un personaje sin caer en obviedades. Ya que al fin y al cabo una imagen dota de una carga semántica mucho más humana que un texto.

Characterization of university drop-out at UNRN using data mining. A study case

Characterization of university drop-out at UNRN using data mining. A study case

Abstract. At the National University of Río Negro (UNRN), and its Atlantic Coast Delegation in particular, it is an increasing concern for the courses corresponding to the Bachelor's Degree in Systems, the drop-out and crumbling rates observed in the first four years of the Institution. This paper describes the process of identifying the most relevant features of the problem through which, using Data Mining (DM) techniques, a college drop-out model can be obtained for the academic unit mentioned above. In order to identify the most relevant features, after processing the data we will analyze attribute projections for the expected classes or responses. The results of its application to the student data from the courses of the UNRN have been satisfactory, which allows making some recommendations aimed at reducing the percentage of students who drop put from their courses.

Éxodo : living out guide

Éxodo : living out guide

Com a subtítol, hem escollit “living out guide”, en anglès. L’única accepció que existeix per “live out” fa referència a quan el servei vivia a fora de la casa on treballava. Aquest significat s’ha anat perdent perquè aquest costum ha canviat. Com l’an- glès és un idioma obert i és la mateixa societat la que canvia el significat dels mots, volem inventar aquest joc de paraules: “live out” com viure fora. Aquesta expressió pretén perdre la connotació negativa que atribuïm a la paraula emigrar.

A natural experiment on US clean water act monitoring and compliance

A natural experiment on US clean water act monitoring and compliance

ambient monitoring. Communications with state officials served as anecdotal evidence that regulators stopped or reduced ambient monitoring based on budget concerns. We differentiated plants based on no ambient monitoring, or 3 out of 4 quarters drop in annual monitoring. Results show that these plants increased their relative concentration and quantity discharges by 30 percent in response to exogenous policy change in contrast to those that were regularly monitored for downstream water quality. We interpret the magnitude as high in the light of prior studies establishing plants’ inflexibility in making costly abatement adjustments to changes in other incentives such as regulated levels of effluents. We find differential impact of plants at lower pollution percentiles i.e. those that are overcomplying substantially; especially for relative quantity loads. We do not find noteworthy differences in publicly owned treatment works versus privately owned manufacturing plants; especially for the diff-in-diff estimations.

Armed Conflict Exposure, Human Capital Investments and Child Labor: Evidence from Colombia

Armed Conflict Exposure, Human Capital Investments and Child Labor: Evidence from Colombia

We believe this study contributes to the existent empirical literature in several respects. First, as mentioned earlier, we provide evidence concerning the impact violence has on child labor decisions, something that has not been studied before. Second, unlike earlier studies on education and armed conflict, we take into account the intertemporal nature of schooling drop-out decisions and, correspondingly, carry out a duration analysis approach. To estimate both effects, we combine two exceptional data sets. The first one provides detailed information on the education investment and child labor decisions of households; the second reports armed conflict in Colombia by event at the municipality level between 1990 and 2003. Using information regarding the latter, we are able to construct a measure of the intensity of armed conflict each child has been exposed to since they were six years of age. This allows us to discern variations in exposure to violence even between children living in the same municipality and household.

Eating out

Eating out

Soon we were served. They brought sausage soup. It is supposed to be a creamy broth with sausage, potatoes and green beans. When I tasted it, I enjoyed the flavor, but it was not Toscana soup as I know it. I just did not recognize it as being Italian. Shortly after, they brought out the Roman pasta that is cooked with green beans, tomatoes and olive oil, then tossed with noodles and a white herb sauce. Unfortunately, the sauce was bland and the beans were undercooked. Undercooked beans taste like grass. I don’t know why they cooked it that way. It was all wrong. Next the dessert arrived. It was Tiramisu, a creamy dessert made with liquor and served chilled. It was really bad. The texture was chewy, and they had used too much liquor. It had a very strong taste. I was disappointed by the quality of the food, so to console myself I ordered a coke. My conclusion is that the Olive Branch does not offer a “genuine Italian dining experience.”
