Domains and predictors of first-year student success: A systematic literature review
Publication date: Available online 11 January 2018 Source:Educational Research Review Author(s): Petrie JAC. van der Zanden, Eddie Denessen, Antonius H.N. Cillessen, Paulien C. Meijer The predictors of first-year student success received much attention in educational practice and theory. However, first-year student success can be defined in various ways. By studying different theoretical research strands, we developed a conceptual framework consisting of three domains of first-year student success, namely students' academic achievement, critical thinking skills, and social-emotional well-being. The goal of this systematic literature review was to illustrate whether the predictors and their effects are similar and/or different across these three domains of first-year student success. A systematic search yielded 80 articles that were eligible. The results indicated that some predictors contributed to multiple domains of success, namely students’ previous academic performance, study skills, motivation, social relationships, and participation in first-year programs. Further, some predictors were typical for a specific domain. Academic achievement and social-emotional well-being were particularly related to factors within the student, whereas critical thinking skills were more related to the learning environment.

The highest known clouds in Earth ’s atmosphere can be seen soon after sunset in late spring and early summerThe late spring/early summer is a good time to look for noctilucent clouds. These are the highest known clouds that form in Earth ’s atmosphere. They exist at a height of about 80km; to all intents and purposes this is the edge of space. The clouds glow as white or pale blue tendrils across a dark sky. This allows you to distinguish them from cirrus clouds, which are visible only in daytime because they do not glow.Related:Weatherwatch: beyond the ordinary – noctilucent or 'night' cloudsContinue reading...
