Interpersonal inventory The interpersonal inventory was extracted from MI Inventory that validated and modified for the Iranian context by Hajhashemi and Wong (2010) implemented in this study. It consists of 10 Likert-type Yes-No statements designed to assess the interpersonal intelligence of students that proposed by Howard Gardner (Appendix
Research suggests that emotional intelligence and emotional skills are related to achievement, career success and personal well being (Low, 2000). Nelson and Low (2003) state that: Emotional Intelligence is the single most important influencing variable in personal achievement, career success, leadership, and life satisfaction. Emotional Intelligence is a learned ability requiring a systematic experience-based approach to learning. Schools and colleges do not provide a practical and systematic model to learn emotional intelligence skills. Learning emotional knowledge and skills requires an internal, active, learner-centered approach.
 have applied different decision tree algorithms like ID3(Iterative Dichotomiser) and C4.5 to predict students academic performances and checked their accuracy to choose the appropriate algorithm that could be effectively applied. Mohammed M. Abu Tair and Alaa M. El-Halees  have given a case study on how to use different data mining techniques like Association Rule Mining, Clustering, Classification and Outlier Detection at various phases to improve the academic performance of graduate
(2013) estimate correlations between teacher observables and students' lagged scores, within school-grade-year cells. Both papers find evidence for some sorts of matching. Dieterle et al. (2013) distinguish between tracking and matching, as I do, and investigate the sensitivity of different value-added model specifications to these types of nonrandom classroom
Abstract Theoretical framework of this study based on Big Five Personality Trait Theory (Cattell’s & Eysenck’s 1973). Objectives of the study were: i) to compare different personality traits of male and female students ii) to find out the relationship between male and female secondary school students academic achievement in different subjects iii) to give recommendations in order to improve the situation and for further research. Descriptive survey design was used for this study. All the secondary school students of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan constituted the population of the study. Out of 25 districts 2 districts were randomly selected (Bannu & Lakki Marwat).
It is considered a field study because the study was conducted on 11th graders enrolled in a social science program; the class they were attending was geography. The purpose of the study was to assess the success of problem based learning (PBL) on critical thinking and learning outcomes. The hypothesis was clearly stated that PBL will have a significant effect on learning outcomes. They administered an essay exam to gather data to evaluate learning and used class test scores to assess critical thinking. Data was gathered from pre- and post-test scores for measuring learning outcomes.
Firstly, what are factors that determine the effectiveness of the use of ICT in education and learning? Secondly, what are factors that determine the failure of the use ICT in education and learning? 3.2 Population and Sampling The population for this research was particularly in the learning process in higher education institutions in Indonesia and school teachers throughout Malaysia. A stratified random sampling was useful to select the sample for this research. Firstly, the administrative zones of all the states in Malaysia were recognized to trial fairness in choosing the schools according to the number of schools located in each zone.
2.2 Related studies Jatupong Mora (2002) did the research to investigate the students’ learning styles, the teachers’ teaching styles, the congruence between learning and teaching styles, and the relationship of the congruence between learning and teaching styles to the English language achievement. The subjects in his study were 98 fifth-year students and 2 teachers at Songkhla Business Administration College. He used the Learning Style Questionnaire, the Teaching Style Questionnaire, and the students’ scores in two courses as the instruments in his study. This study revealed that analytic learning style with the highest mean (3.8418) was strongly preferred learning style. In addition, only one learning style among twelve learning styles
Villavicencio conducted a study on “Influence of Self-efficacy and help-seeking on Task Value and Academic Achievement” last 2011. The study examined the predictive relationships of help-seeking, help avoidance and self-efficacy, task value and achievement in final grades. A total of 215 (124 males and 91 females) engineering enrolled in algebra answered the self-efficacy and task value scales. Help –seeking was assessed using Marchand and Skinner’s scale. The task value and self-efficacy for learning and performance scales of the Motivated Strategies of Learning Questionnaire were also used.
The survey was done on 7807 students of class 10-12 by distributing the questionnaires. In this analysis ethics are segregate in three parts:- low ethic level, medium ethics level & high ethic level. Chi- Square test, Cramer’s test & Eta test are used to find the relation & correlation between variables. Prediction of ethics levels is done by Ordinal Regression. By this they found that there is correlation between the student’s ethics & variables like sex, class, CGPA, mother’s occupation, mother’s education, their education level, debts of family, relation of their parents, age.
