The drop-out questionnaire was designed according to the standard drop-out questionnaires and with special focus to the context of studying at CARITAS – College of Social Work in Olomouc (this includes especially the fact that the College has many mature part-time students).
The questionnaire was delivered to 250 respondents, who dropped out of the study from 2012 – 2016. The respond rate was nearly 30%, which is considered successful. The results were used for preparation of new curriculum and generally served as a feedback for the management.
