NONINTELLECTIVE FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH SCHOLASTIC ACHIEVEMENT.
TERRELL, GLENN; WYER, ROBERT S., JR.
NONINTELLECTIVE FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IN COLLEGE WERE INVESTIGATED IN THREE PHASES OF RESEARCH--(1) PERSONALITY AND MOTIVATIONAL CORRELATES OF ACADEMIC APTITUDE AND PERFORMANCE AMONG STUDENTS WHO HAD COMPLETED AT LEAST 1 YEAR OF COLLEGE WERE EXAMINED, (2) DATA WERE COLLECTED FROM FRESHMAN STUDENTS BEFORE THEY ENTERED COLLEGE, AND (3) QUESTIONNAIRES WERE ADMINISTERED TO STUDENTS TO DETERMINE THE PARTICULAR GOALS THEY BELIEVED WERE IMPORTANT TO THEM AND THE PERCEIVED RELEVANCE OF GOOD GRADES AND ACHIEVEMENT-RELATED ACTIVITY. VARIOUS CONCLUSIONS WERE PRESENTED ON THE RELEVANCE OF ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT TO GOAL ATTAINMENT. STUDENTS WHO BELIEVED THAT ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT WAS A NECESSARY CONDITION FOR ATTAINING THEIR GOAL PERFORMED BETTER THAN STUDENTS WHO BELIEVED THAT ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT WAS NOT SO ESSENTIAL. THE IMPORTANCE OF ATTENDING COLLEGE, ASSESSED INDEPENDENTLY OF THE REASON FOR ITS IMPORTANCE, WAS RELATED POSITIVELY TO PERFORMANCE AMONG BOTH MALES AND FEMALES. (TC)
