Correlates of College Retention and GPA: Learning and Study Strategies, Testwiseness, Attitudes, and ACT

Correlates of College Retention and GPA: Learning and Study Strategies, Testwiseness, Attitudes,... This study assessed unique contributions of learning, study, and test‐taking strategies; students' attitudes about college; and ACT scores, and linked them to college GPA and to retention. Although several variables contributed significantly to GPA, only GPA made a significant unique contribution to attrition and retention. This suggests that learning and study strategies and students' college attitudes affect attrition indirectly through GPA. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of College Counseling Wiley

Abstract

This study assessed unique contributions of learning, study, and test‐taking strategies; students' attitudes about college; and ACT scores, and linked them to college GPA and to retention. Although several variables contributed significantly to GPA, only GPA made a significant unique contribution to attrition and retention. This suggests that learning and study strategies and students' college attitudes affect attrition indirectly through GPA.
