The Effect of Attitudes Toward Study, Achievement Motivation, study hobits on Academic Performance Among Qatar University Female students

Auther : Yousef M. Al-Abdulla - Sabika Y. Al-Khulaifi

The present research was designed to examine the functional (i.e., predictive) relationship between academic performance (as measured by GPA) with attitudes toward study, achievement motivation, and study habits. Two hundred and forty two Qatari female undergraduate college students from the College of Education participated in the study, 98 of them were science students and 144 were literature/humanity students. Two instruments were used in this study: The Achievement Motivation Scale and Survey of Study Habits & Attitudes. The results of this research study revealed that: (1) In general, academic performance was significantly and positively related to attitudes toward study, achievement motivation, and study habits for the overall sample and for science and literature/humanity students, separately. (2) Academic performance was significantly, positively, and moderately related to Methods of Work (an index of study habit) more than relating to the variable of achievement motivation or the two variables of attitudes toward study for the overall sample and for science and literature/humanity students, separately. (3) Academic performance was significantly and simultaneously predicted by all the variables together (i.e., attitudes toward study, achievement motivation, and study habits), with a higher size effect for literature/humanity students (R_Squared = .22) than science students (R_Squared = .16). (4) The only predicting variable of academic performance for the overall sample (squared part correlation = .0517) and for the literature/humanity students sample (squared part. correlation = .0767) was Methods of Work while there were two predicting variables, Achievement Motivation (squared part. correlation = .0630) and Methods of Work (squared part correlation = .407) of Academic Performance for the science students sample; and (5) the amounts of variance not predicted in Academic Performance by Attitudes toward Study, Achievement Motivation, and Study Habits, simultaneously, were .83 for the overall sample, .84 for science students sample, and .78 for the literature/humanity students sample.
