Using Cognitive, Motivational, and Emotional Constructs for Assessing Learning Outcomes in Student Services: An Exploratory Study

Several cognitive motivational scales were examined for their ability to predict short-range academic outcomes (grades, percentage of units earned over units attempted, units earned), and to measure cognitive gains as a consequence of services provided by community college counseling offices. The findings suggest that scales measuring self-regulation, academic self-efficacy, academic and career goal clarity, and to a smaller extent dispositional hope for academic success can help identify potentially at-risk students, assist in suggesting appropriate interventions, and provide counseling departments with relevant measures of student learning. Among other findings, results show that for samples of Disabled Students Programs and Services students and Extended Opportunity Programs and Services students at eight California Community Colleges, grade-point-average was positively related to self-regulation and self-efficacy.
