Predicting Academic Entitlement in Undergraduates
Sohr-Preston, Sara; Boswell, Stefanie S.
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v27 n2 p183-193 2015
Academic entitlement (AE) is a common source of frustration for college personnel. This investigation examined predictors (self-concept, academic dishonesty, locus of control, and family functioning) of AE in male and female college students. Academic dishonesty and the interaction between locus of control and family functioning significantly predicted AE. Males reported significantly higher levels of AE, and the interaction between locus of control and family functioning was significant only for females. Future research should address possible developmental pathways to AE in adulthood to further understanding of this problematic belief system.
