Creativity is very important in achieving the academic goal. Creativity is positively related with the achievement of academic aim. Certain interpersonal skills, procedures, techniques, , creativity, , problem solving skills, communication skills have a successful relationship with the achievement of academic goal. Creativity predicts intellectual performance better than skills alone, and it directly influences academic performance through intelligence. Although past achievement increases creativity it is student interpretation of past successes and failures that may be responsible for following
Active learning is a set of strategies that motivates students to learn by their own with the help of Knowledgeable others. The following examples of active learning are being used in this study; discovery learning, problem-based learning, experiential learning, and inquiry-based instruction, think-pair-share, quick-writes, polling, cooperative learning, and student presentations. Another theory for which this study is also anchored is attributed to Frederick Herzberg the Motivation Theory. It is concerned with the processes that describe why and how human behavior is activated and directed. Motivated learners can learn almost everything.
Situation Analysis The primary objective of educational institutions is students’ learning, and learning requires using such processes as planning, application of knowledge, monitoring, regulation and reflection (Azevedo, 2009). Aristotle pointed out that the mind uses a different power above and beyond seeing and hearing, thus, laid the foundations for thinking about metacognition (Sandi-Ureña, 2008). Metacognitive skills appear to be highly independent. By means of thorough task orientation, a metacognitively skilled student is likely to focus on relevant information given in the task assignment, necessary for building an adequate task representation. A detailed action plan can be designed.
(2004) contends that students who were enrolled in a CTE program were partaking in more high-level math classes than a group of general education students. Stone, J. (2004) also found that not only did these students enroll in high-level math courses, but they also excelled in other academic coursework. Stone, J., Alfeld, C., & Pearson, D. (2008). Rigor “and” Relevance: Enhancing High School Students’ Math Skills through Career and Technical Education.
Need for knowledge or the need to process and internalize exploration and experience results that could assist in problems solving. 3. Need for ego improvement or the search for self-knowledge driven by the desire to be accepted and approved by others. When analyzing the development of a foreign language in the learning process, the different learning style of the students need to be taken into account. It’s also important to remember that intrinsic motivation aids students’ learning and that the quality of classroom interaction matters a great deal.
This study is anchored on Daniel Goleman’s mix model of Emotional Intelligence. EQ is the ability of the person to distinguish, evaluate, assess and control one’s own emotions, others emotion, and of the groups. Thus the person has his positive way to manage stressors, able to express his thoughts and action in a right manner, ability to empathize with other feelings, and can successfully dealt with the challenges and confusion of one’s life (Carter, K., Seifert, C., 2013). Emotional intelligence determines how the individuals emotionally competence based on the four domains in terms of personal and social competencies that results in outstanding performance in school and at work setting. Personal competence focuses on individuals how to
Other related studies suggest that the improvement of students' attitudes towards mathematics can improve the student achievement in mathematics. In contrast, Benbow, Camila, Arjmond (2012) conducted a longitudinal study on predictors of high academic achievement in mathematics and science by mathematical talented students which revealed that almost all students had achieved highly by conventional standards (e.g. 85% had received bachelor degrees) and using quantitative definition of academic achievements in college, it was found that 22% were high academic achievers and 8% were low academic achievers in mathematics and
The concept of learning is changing from lecturers teaching to student learning. The assumption of this shift is based on students who are expected to improve their ability in enriching knowledge, attitudes and skills based on competencies in the curriculum. Thus, it can be said that student activeness is an indicator of meaningful learning. Meaningful learning is an approach in the management of learning systems through active learning ways toward independent learning. The ability to learn independently is the ultimate goal of meaningful learning.
Wester refers academic achievement as "the quality and quantity of a student 's work." Educational bodies usually look at the overall academic achievement of the students enrolled in their education system to study the efficiency of their system and to decide if any changes need to be made in the system for obtaining better results(6). Academic Achievement plays a very crucial role in an individual 's life as it shapes them and helps them to understand the world around them from a different point of view. It helps them to become responsible social beings and helps them to learn how to work through daily life
Results indicated that family structure is of the predictors of academic achievement. In another study of the same author (Jeynes, 2002), it is explained that the family structure can affect the quantity and quality of time parents can spend with the child. Researchers have found that parents ‘education has a direct positive connection with students’ academic achievements and is a significant predictors of their achivement. Parental education level affects the structure of the family environment (Linver, BrooksGunn, & Cohen, 2002; Yeung, Linver, & Brooks-Gunn, 2002), or in different styles of parenting (Mistry, Vanderwater, Houston, & McLoyd, 2002). Maternal educational level 340 Education for the knowledge society is another factor that affects students’ academic achievement (Magnuson, 2003).
