Ortiz (1995) an Evans et al. (1998) present that knowing Students Development Theories can help higher education personnel (staff, faculty, and administrators) to provide better programs and services base on student diversity and particularities. Student Development theories generally fall into four broad categories, each of which represents different perspectives on the students: 1. Psychosocial Theories (Arthur Chikering and Linda Reisser, 1993) focus on the personal and interpersonal aspects of students ' lives as they accomplish various developmental tasks, or resolve the inevitable crises that
2.0 Introduction This chapter mainly contains three sections. The first section discusses about the general concepts and definition adopted in the current study. The second section basically explains on the theoretical framework of the study and how the theories fit into the study. In the last section, a review of the past studies on the factors that influence the career preference of the students is examined in depth. The literature review particularly emphasized on how students’ personality type may influence their preferences on certain type of jobs, activities or occupations.
Third, identities are multidimensional. In a study conducted to explore the relationship between identity dimensions and the three outcome variables (educational expectations, participation in social activities, and academic performance), undergraduate students were asked to participate to help create a college student identity measure. The Burke-Tully (1977) procedure was used, taking into account seven identity dimensions. Four hypotheses were tested, reflecting the expectation that students scoring high on the identity dimensions would be encouraged in their behavioral performances. The results indicated that each of the identity dimensions were related to at least one of the outcome variables, and that identity may help individuals select behavior and plans consistent with self meanings (Reitzes,
These expectancies can be based on diverse student characteristics, only one of which is past academic performance. The present study investigated three student individual differences that teachers may use when forming academic expectancies: the sex of the student, the family socioeconomic status (SES) of the student, and the student's after-school activities. (Hickman D., 2000) When designing a performance task, educators should make sure that it requires application, not simply

Therefore career development theories provide the basis for career counsellors to have a better understanding of particular strategies, approaches and tools there by meeting the needs of school students (Canadian career development foundation, 2011). In essence theory influences practice (Mational Guidance Research Forum, 2010). Career development theories also provide the guidance to purpose. Theories also provide the role of foundations for explaining career behaviors with students related to career problems. However the point of intention about career development theories is the argument present by Whiston and Brecheisen (2002) as to which theory is appropriate in developing the career of secondary school
Thus, this paper aims to utilize such theories to explain my development journey and apply them to the major events and moments that influenced me during my undergraduate experience. Specifically, I will examine how my background and my situation affected who I was leading up to college, followed by my experiences as I move through each year of my education until I reach who I am today. Life Before College Before delving deep into my college student development
They receive and process information differently. Students have differences in their personality behaviours and the way how they understand things. It is often argued that different personality traits are needed for people to be prosperous in their career. Variables that foretell the patterns of student’s personality types and their connection to academic performance were frequently searched by educators, researchers and psychologists. Personality has been recognized as a determining factor on how people learn (Lawrence, 1997; Myer et al, 1998).

The career decision’s self-efficacy of final year students and analyses the relationship between students’ career decision self-efficacy and parental involvement during career decision-making. The importance of cognitive factors in deciding on the profession is sufficiently widely analyzed in the modern psychological literature on career topics, but links between external factors, such as parental support, interference, or non-involvement, POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES and career decision’s self-efficacy analysis are inadequate. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between parental involvement during career decision-making and students’ career decision self-efficacy. The study sought to find the relationship between three parental involvement facets – support, interference, lack of engagement – and students’ career decision
