Abstract

The issue of attrition and graduation delays in higher education is almost as old as higher education itself. The impact of attrition on stu-dents, educational institutions, governments and economies is substantial. Despite the existence of many studies on attrition, the results fail to agree on what factors are actually relevant or primarily influential. To provide a new perspective on this issue, the Functional Resonance Analysis Method (FRAM) was applied to evaluate a case study in higher education. This approach enables the analyst to understand attrition as an outcome of the performance variability of students, supervisors and universities. The ap-plication of FRAM shows how the combination of functional variability (resonance) might cause or add up to the issues and how to identify sources of variability within the analyzed system.
