Descripción
Es el capítulo 14 del libro: Factors Affecting Academic Performance, que pertence a la serie: Education in a Competitive and Globalizing World (2017) En dicho capítulo se presenta un estudio sobre abandono de primer año en la UPM, así com una aplicación desarrollada para monitorizar los factores que más influyen en dicho problema. Abstract: The work has focused on the dropout happening after the first year of university, the moment of higher dropout risk according to previous research. The first phase of the study has been devoted to a qualitative and quantitative analysis of factors associated with dropout. This has led to the conclusion that low academic performance and also difficulties of integration, in the social and university spheres, are key aspects to explain academic dropout. A clear relation between school absenteeism and academic dropout has also been established. On the basis of this result, a group of teachers whose classes show a high level of attendance have been selected and, by means of surveys and personal interviews addressed to this group, a guide of good teaching practices motivating academic persistence has been elaborated. Finally, the First Year Retention Rate has been considered as a quality indicator, and a sustainable protocol for monitoring such indicator has been established. To achieve this, an online software, ASIA1a, has been developed. This tool, using the available university official data, automatically generates reports and creates a profile for the populations of academic persistence and dropout in each bachelor degree.
