Factors Associated with the Academic Performance of Malaysian Students at Louisiana State University. Research and Thesis-Summary No. 55.
Hj:Zainuddin, Tormodi Bin
This document, a summary of a master's thesis in extension education, analyzes the relationship of selected factors with the academic performance of Malaysian students enrolled at Louisiana State University. Data were collected by mail questionnaire from all Malaysian students with a diploma in agriculture who were enrolled at the university in fall 1973. Grade-point averages were obtained from the College of Agriculture and Graduate School. Major findings indicated that with a grade-point average of 3.18, Malaysian students had a fairly good academic performance. Earlier enrollees and graduate students had a significantly higher academic performance than later enrollees and undergraduates, indicating that students who had more time to adjust to the social and learning environment performed better than those students who recently enrolled. Characteristics of students enrolled for more than one year and students enrolled for less than one year are included. (MJM)
