Methods in Behavioral

In institutional research on campus, we seek to describe what behaviors seem related to retention of undergraduates on campus. An example from research is to describe whether use of library services tends to increase occurs with an increase in grades achieved. Thus, we collect data on use of library services measured in hours. We also collect data on education progress measured as GPA for the year. Those research results help us to describe whether library use seems related to grades achieved in the first year. Then, we compare those two variables for the two groups: Undergraduates who drop out in the first year and undergraduates who are retained in the first year. The importance of such descriptive research is to use the results to help improve retention of undergraduates on campus (Soria, Franson, & Nackerud, 2013).  Do you have an example from research that shows importance of it in an area of behavioral sciences in which you have an interest?  Please explain
