Talafha, Feras
International Education Studies, v8 n2 p70-77 2015
This study examines the level of psychographic attributes among the preparatory year students enrolled at the University of Dammam, Saudi Arabia. The study sample consists of 209 students chosen with the help of random sampling and questionnaire survey was employed for data collection. Based on the findings, the entire study variables, which are achievement motivation, self-efficacy and leisure attitude, were revealed to have average levels. Additionally, the findings revealed a significant correlation between all the variables. Specifically, differences were noted between students on the basis of their gender and study tracks on some study variables. The study recommends that in an attempt to facilitate students' positive attitude towards the university, it is imperative for the university management to plan and organize programs geared towards developing positive attitude, increasing self-efficacy and motivation among the students.
