The Killer Course Hypothesis

Author

Abstract

Due to recent legislative changes, universities in Tennessee will receive funding based on student retention and graduation rates rather than enrollment. In light of these changes it is important that academics in all disciplines study retention rates in order to identify areas for improvement. I investigate the impact of “killer courses” on student retention both in the school of agriculture and in the general student population. In addition I explore alternative frameworks for addressing retention issues.
