  1. 1. Flight Students PersistenceAli Ousmane MahamaneAVN 3700-Transportation AnalysisUniversity of Nebraska Omaha
  2. 2. Research Process Overview Research Question Literature Review Hypothesis Development Logic Model Methodology Limitations Questions
  3. 3. Research Question Theoretical standpoint: Persistence is the ability to stay in a program, inspite of the hardships. Persistence: Probability of completing a certificate The student determination to earn the certificate
  4. 4. Research Question Practical standpoint: Not quiet observable Variables changing What variables are affecting flying studentspersistence?
  5. 5. Literature review Ethnicity Asians >Whites >Hispanic >African-American Finance + income family have, + graduation rates Educational assistance Home, University (Math Lab, Writing & Speech) Colleges management Federal funds, programs reliability
  6. 6. Literature review Gender Male > Female Grade Point Average Experience Hours logged Part 61 (40 Hrs Private and 250 Hrs Comm.) Part 141(35 Hrs Private and 190 Hrs Comm.)
  7. 7. Hypothesis Development Null hypothesis A student is persistent No relation between the variables In real life students drop out, others stay. Reject the null hypothesis
  8. 8. Logic Model Sample UNO Flight students, flight team members. Timeframe Relative to the pilot certificate 90 days, 12 weeks for the private 200 days, 29 weeks for the commercial Accurate data on attendance, other time relatedvariables
  9. 9. Logic Model Dependent variable Time to graduate Semesters, courses Students & Academic advisor authorization Certificate completion rate Progression Break the down the steps to earn the license Ground class, flight class, flight hours, assessments,medical currency and others
  10. 10. Logic Model Independent variables Finance Personal funds, financial aid Interview the student cross-sectional study Weekly flying hours # hours per week, longitudinal study Flight provider and student authorization
  11. 11. Logic Model Independent variable Attendance Percentage of class attended Longitudinal study Flight instructor and student interview Gender Male or female Race Asian, White, Hispanic, Black
  12. 12. Methodology From student information & literature Create variables Scale for the variable Assess the relation of data to graduation rate Assign a coefficient to the variable Product of the variables coefficient
  13. 13. Methodology Nomenclature Funds -> FND Hours -> HRS Attendance -> ATD Gender -> GDR
  14. 14. Methodology Note: The coefficient are not applicable to the UNO sample. Awell conducted study will provide specific coefficient tothe sample of the research. Coefficients from my own analysis of the topic based onthe literature review
  15. 15. Methodology Race and RCE variableRace RCE ScaleAsians 2Whites 1Hispanics .7African-Americans .5
  16. 16. Methodology Gender and GDR ScaleGender GDR ScaleMale 1Female .5
  17. 17. Methodology Weekly flying hours and HRS ScaleNumber of hours per session HRS Scale4 33 22 11 .10 .01
  18. 18. Methodology Attendance and ATD ScaleAttendance in percentage ATD Scale100 175 .7550 .525 .250 0
  19. 19. Methodology Funds and FND ScaleStudents funds FND Scale$10,000 to $9,000 4$9,000 to $8,000 3$8,000 to $7,000 2$7,000 to $6,000 1$6,000 to $5,000 .5$5,000 to $4,000 .25$4,000 to $3,000 .1$3,000 to $0 .01
  20. 20. Methodology Compute the FND, HRS,ATD, GDR and RCEvalues Persistence = FND*ATD*GDR*RCE*HRS
  21. 21. Limitations Data on students funds Personal information Sharing issue Accessing the students credential Written authorization of the student Institutions collaboration Meeting with the student Explain the research process How important the data Institutions, flight providers will benefit
  22. 22. Limitations Family Education Rights & Privacy Act Subpart B: inspection and review students records Omission of other variable weather, sickness and others. Model valid if Ceteris Paribus
