McDonough, Daniel P., and Roger P. Peterson. Can Short-Term
McDonough's '96 data presented in an easier-to-follow format and with added graphs and analysis.
An important quote that I believe is not found in the original masters thesis:
"Our study demonstrates that in order to create an increased likelihood of potential career missionaries, two related short-term mission strategies must be employed: 1) Multiple Outreaches / a short-termer must perform more than one short-term mission outreach statistically speaking, he/she must have 1.45 short-term mission experiences); and 2) Increases On-Field Time / the second outreach needs to mandate longer on-field time than the first outreach (specifically, our study observed the first two-week short-term outreach needed to be followed up by a second short-term outreach of at least four weeks-or at least twice the on-field time commitment.)" ---p. 31
