Wong, Billy; Chiu, Yuan-Li Tiffany – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
Research on the 'ideal' or 'good' student tends to be situated within compulsory schooling.

Rosman, Tom; Mayer, Anne-Kathrin; Leichner, Nikolas; Krampen, Günter – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2020
The transition to higher education is a topic of concern for educators around the world. In fact, the shift to a more competitive educational environment can negatively impact students' academic self-concept, which, in turn, might lead to lower persistence and less adaptive educational decisions.

Higher education institutions (HEIs) are increasingly being measured using key performance indicators (KPIs) such as student retention, success, achievement and attendance.

Tsang, Tiffany Lee – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Some scholars speculate that humanities education, as compared to STEM education, may be better able to provide students with the most in-demand twenty-first century workplace skill: innovation. Due to the lack of empirical research on this topic, this study compares US humanities and STEM students' college gains in their 'propensity toward…

Although the number of engineering students is increasing, dropout rates remain high. This problem is also present in the Faculty of Engineering Technology (FET) at KU Leuven, Belgium, which resulted in the need for an in-depth analysis of the academic achievement of the bridging students there. This study examines the contribution of a range of…

Holliman, Andrew J.; Sheriston, Lee; Martin, Andrew J.; Collie, Rebecca J.; Sayer, Demi – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Individual differences in 'adaptability' -- cognitive, behavioural, and emotional adjustment in the face of change, novelty, and uncertainty -- are theorised to influence students' academic achievement and course satisfaction; although the literature examining these relations in tertiary education is sparse. In the present study, first-year…

Öhrstedt, Maria; Lindfors, Petra – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Students' ways of approaching their studies influence their academic outcomes. Expecting high grades and having the skills to steer learning activities towards assessment demands seem to be important components of academic success. However, our knowledge about students' capacity to predict academic achievement is limited. Focusing on…
