Resumen

MUNOZ-CAMACHO, Samaria V.; GALLARDO, Teresita; MUNOZ-BRAVO, Meridalba  y  MUNOZ-BRAVO, Carlos A.. Probability of Student Dropout in Courses of Basic Mathematics in Professional Programs of the Universidad de Los Andes-Venezuela. Form. Univ. [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.4, pp.33-42. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062018000400033.

The objective of the present work is to describe the probability of student desertion in courses of basic mathematics for different professional programs of the University of Los Andes-Venezuela. This is the result of an investigation conducted in the period 2011 to 2016, which assumed a quantitative research design and followed the methodological alternative of a single case study. Different methods were applied at theoretical, empirical and statistical-mathematical levels. For this purpose, a Logit model was constructed to assess whether the probability of dropping out is predicted by considering personal characteristics (such as gender) and institutional aspects such as the type of academic period, the type of academic course and the number of students per course. The results show in a relevant way, the greater probability of dropping out from courses taken during a regular academic period, those having free schooling, from courses of more than fifty students and belonging to the female gender.

Palabras clave : student dropout; professional programs; basic math; probability; logit models.
