HowToDefineRetention.pdf
  
Perhaps the two most vexing measurement issues in higher education research are how to obtain true transfer rates from community colleges to four-year universities and the correct formula for the measure of college student retention, regardless of institutional type. While this chapter will focus specifically on retention, it is important to note that the problems associated with an appropriate measurement system is common to other often-researched outcomes in higher education.
