Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether Astin's theory of efficacy of involvement applied to a population of developmental education students. The study revealed that working part-time on campus for an average of eight hours per week during the entire first year of college resulted in significantly higher rates of retention and higher academic achievement for traditional-age developmental education students.
