TL;DR: The authors examined the impact of changes in Tennessee's performance funding policies on retention and six-year graduation rates at public four-year institutions from 1995-2009 and found that tying retention and graduation rates to performance funding was unrelated to changes in the performance measures over the fifteen year period examined.
Abstract: As the architect of the oldest and most stable performance funding program, Tennessee provides a unique opportunity to analyze the impact of changes in performance funding policies on changes in institutional retention and six-year graduation rates over time. Utilizing spline linear mixed models, this study examines the impact of changes in Tennessee’s performance funding policies on retention and six-year graduation rates at public four-year institutions from 1995-2009. The results show tying retention and graduation rates to performance funding was unrelated to changes in the performance measures over the fifteen year period examined. Additionally, the doubling of the monetary incentive associated with the retention and six-year graduation rate measures in 2005 was not associated with increases in retention rates. These results suggest that at their current funding levels, states’ adoption of performance funding programs, such as the one in Tennessee, may be insufficient to incentivize changes in institutional behavior as desired by state leaders.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors found significant differences between black and white student cohorts in terms of their attrition rates, overall progression rates (defined as length of time to graduate), and tendency to follow the prescribed progression pattern (sophomore in the second year, junior in the third year, senior in fourth year, and graduate after the fourth year).
Abstract: In this study of college student retention and progression, significant differences were found between black and white student cohorts in terms of their attrition rates, overall progression rates (defined as length of time to graduate), and tendency to follow the prescribed progression pattern (sophomore in the second year, junior in the third year, senior in the fourth year, and graduate after the fourth year). However, multiple regression analyses show that racial differences disappear when the effects of other student and institutional characteristics are statistically controlled. Therefore, colleges and universities would do well to rethink special retention and counseling programs designed especially to serve minority group students.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors report the results of a research study that replicated the student survey administered for the previous study, but with changes in the questionnaire to reflect how technology has become infused in teaching and the assessment of learning.
Abstract: A previous study conducted a decade ago determined that there can be considerable disagreement—not only between students and faculty, but also among students and among faculty—regarding behaviors that constitute cheating. This article reports the results of a research study that replicated the student survey administered for the previous study, but with changes in the questionnaire to reflect how technology has become infused in teaching and the assessment of learning. Recommendations for preventing academic dishonesty are also provided.
