Application of the TETRAD II Program to the Study of Student Retention in U.S. Colleges
We applied TETRAD II, a causal discovery program developed in Carnegie Mellon University’s Department of Philosophy, to a database containing information on 204 U.S. colleges, collected by the US News and World Report magazine for the purpose of college ranking. Our analysis focuses on possible causes of low freshmen retention in U.S. colleges. TETRAD II ﬁnds a set of causal structures that are compatible with the data.
