Study habits itself affects the Academic performance of students taking up BS Accountancy measured by their General points average (GPA). According to Nonis & Hudson (2010), Study Habits can have either positive or negative effects with academic performance because of its direct relationship with it. There is a positive effect of study habits if one’s General Percentage Average (GPA) were good or high on the other hand, if their grades are below average there is a negative impact on it. Positive or negative effect is based on grades because it represents the academic performance of each student. Every student wants to aim for a high grades, and in order to achieve it students should know how to be effective.
Standardized tests are the types of examinations that require the test takers to answer the same questions which include the same instructions, format, and scoring scale that can determine their education power relatively to each other. Some people believe that these exams are important for testing the knowledge of students before entering college. In fact, they claim that because they believe it can measure college success. As a matter of fact, having high school grades and high test marks can help predict success in college. Standardized tests can determine students’ performance because they are objective, fair, and comprehensive.
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
The articles "Simple but Not Easy" and "Ten Rules of Good and Bad Studying" are similar in the content and examples they give but contrasting in format. How can one study to make a good grade on exams? That is the question that both articles attempt to answer. Both articles extensively go into details about how and how not to study. The main purpose of the articles is to inform students on superior studying habits so that students perform better on exams and better know the material.
Study Skills D NO: L0033AHAAHA0817 FULL NAME: ELMEHDI SDIRA 19/10/2017 There are a lot of skills needed to achieve good grades and to have an excellent academic level. In order to be successful, students need good study skills. Study skills are a set of skills which help students become effective learners (Oxford Dictionaries | English, 2017). This strategy of study helps students become more effective and make the studying easier by using a lot of skills and a productive learning method. It is a method to learn and a key to be successful in all types of studies.
Studies time and again have shown that personality traits greatly influence the most effective learning style for a student, and, it even influences the subjects one chooses to study (Fallan, 2006). Moreover, other studies have even shown the fact that in the past decades, research has shown that keeping the learning styles in line with the personality traits that one possesses would not only enhance the student’s academic performance but would make success more achievable (Abdullah, 2012). A study by Rashid et al (2012) revealed that there was a connection between agreeableness (personality trait) and assimilating (learning style). Kamalurzaman (2012) found out that accommodating style of learning suited the person with the extroverted personality type the most. Thus, there is sufficient evidence to support the fact that past researches and literature reviews have yielded a connection between the traits and learning styles of an
This sense of expectation in their aptitude and ability to regulate their learning may explain why both students’ perception of their academic abilities as well as their actual GPA score are both positively correlated with their levels of self-efficacy. The more self-efficacious students are, the more they will feel they will do well and this will help them achieve on an exam. Self-efficacy influenced not only the setting and regulating of their academic goals, but the achievement of these goals.
High self-efficacy perceptions are also believed to make individuals engage in tasks that develop their skills and capabilities, while low-efficacy perceptions make students choose tasks that will not need development of new skills (Schunk, 1991). Pajares (1996) found that the self-efficacy of gifted students was based on their perceptions of their cognitive ability. In another study, Zimmerman and Kitsantas (2005) suggest that high self-efficacy students attribute more responsibility to learners than to teachers and that perceived responsibility was an important motive for academic achievement. In line with these findings, students who, in paper I, based their self-efficacy on positive self perceptions as excellent students received their efficacy information from their general cognitive ability. They emphasized their own responsibility and their strategy was to study alone without asking for help from peers or teachers.
Social position in the class is significantly correlated with academic achievement, implying that a student who is liked by his course-mates performs better than those not liked (Ezewu, 1978). Also, Anold, Cooper and Robertson (1995) observed that a person’s behaviour is influenced most fundamentally by social interactions which can determine his sense of identity and belonging, and this can equally affect his performance in life activities including academics. Also, studies by McCandles and Evans, (1978); Winterbotton, (1953); Dovanand Adelson, (1958) in Ethothi (2002) have found family factors as a
Professors can give students the proper tools needed to succeed in their class. Something as little as a color of the paper can either decrease or increase the academic performance of the student. Does the fluorescence of colored paper affect student’s reading and mathematically test performance? It is hypothesized that neon colored paper would have more of a positive affect on test performance, research shows that neon colors are effective for keeping us alert (Chellappa et al., 2011). Color is a very effective tool for learning, “it can be used to get attention and enhance clarity” (Olurinola,2015).
