SINOPSIS

Increased enrollment has not produced more degrees for minorities in the science, technology, engineering, or mathematics disciplines. Although there are a variety of reasons for students not persisting, a number of students undoubtedly change majors or drop out due to loss of interest. This study focused solely on interest and interaction variables for predicting persistence in a sample of students from 15 institutions in Ohio.
