Abstract

With a prevalence of 7.1% among all 16 to 24 year olds, high school dropout rates remains a pressing issue in the United States. Effective dropout-prevention programs rest on a sound understanding of the factors that contribute to this national crisis. Two factors that play a role in educational outcomes are achievement motivation and performance. The purpose of this study is to test a model that predicts high school dropout from academic motivation and performance-related constructs, through the statistical analysis of a large-scale national data set.
