Multivariate permutation tests for evaluating effectiveness of universities through the analysis of students dropouts

By Bonnini S., Salmaso L. and Solari A.


This paper deals with the problem of testing for dropping out (by censoring all graduate students) in analogy with survival analysis. A conditional test based on the probability of dropout and on the distribution of observed time to dropout is given. The application of the proposed solution to all students who began one of the three new laurea programs in the Civil Area of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Padua is presented. A simulation study shows that the proposed solution presents a very good overall performance
