International Students' Confidence and Academic Success
Telbis, Nicola Miky
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of North Dakota
Research shows that the international student population is showing significant growth. Studies also show that foreign students are encountering difficulties such as social adaptability, language barriers, academic ability, and financial need. There is compelling evidence that establishes a correlation between a person's self-efficacy and his or her level of achievement. This study used quantitative analysis to determine if there is an association between international students' resources and their academic success. Analysis revealed that international students attending the University of North Dakota who scored high on their confidence levels in completing their programs of study also scored high on their confidence of their resources. Analysis also revealed that students who scored low on their confidence levels in completing their programs of study also scored low on their confidence of their resources.
