Expectations of Involvement (FES I). Female Ethnicities
Persisters Early Drop Outs
Ethnic Group N M SD N M SD
Hispanic 780 3.27 1.19 276 3.26 1.17
Black 966 3.48 1.06 288 3.37 1.22
White 1,212 3.10 1.19 456 3.04 1.14
Note. n= number of unique student responses.
When considering the involvement expectations of all female responders, there was very
little difference between persisters and early drop outs (see Table 3). Getting involved in
volunteer organizations was the activity students most strongly agreed that they would be
participating in while participating in an athletic organization and student government were the
least positive for persisters and early drop outs respectively. For all responses in Table 3, the
standard deviations were at least 1.00, meaning there was some variation among the responses.
