UW-Madison’s Xueli Wang served as editor of a special issue of New Directions for Institutional Research titled, "Studying Transfer in Higher Education: New Approaches to Enduring and Emerging Topics."
From the Editor's Note:
"As a prominent part of postsecondary attendance patterns, transfer among institutions of higher education has generated perennial interest from scholars, institutional researchers, and policy makers. This volume provides updated scholarship on enduring topics in the literature and examines emerging issues pertaining to transfer. Despite the copious research devoted to transfer patterns and students who transfer, this line of research is thronged with conceptual, methodological, and data challenges that warrant continued and more nuanced attention. The nine chapters in this volume set out to offer fresh perspectives and approaches to answer this call."
Wang also authored two chapters in the volume:
