Some Explanatory Variables of Dropout in Technical Higher Education Institutional and Social Loss
The focus of my research is the added value model of technical higher education. I approached the question from several aspects, in this paper I present some of the key results of the study conducted among students who interrupted or terminated their studies without a degree. I am looking for answers to the research questions of how dropouts can be categorized, i.e. from whose point of view it appears as a loss, and which background factors causing learning difficulties are crucial from the point of view of the loss. By turning the further education situation variable into a binary one, an institutional loss and a social loss group became distinguishable. I chose the logistic regression study to investigate which educational background factors can affect the probability of this type of dropout. Among the results, in addition to the critical subject(s), the interest in other training areas and the emergence of "alone with the problem" appeared as a novelty.
