Satisfaction and Academic Engagement among Undergraduate Students: A Case Study in Istanbul University
AbstractAcademic engagement used to refer to the extent to which students identify with and value schooling outcomes, and participate in academic and non-academic school activities. This study aims to investigate the academic engagement and satisfaction from the school among the university students. The data is taken from the undergraduate students in School of Transportation & Logistics in Istanbul University. We used a questionnaire that consisted of two parts. First part of the questionnaire is about to measure the studentsâ€™ academic engagement that is improved by Schaufeli et al. Second part of the questionnaire is about to measure the studentsâ€™ satisfaction from the school. K-means cluster analysis is used to determine two groups of students, group the students in to two clusters based on their school satisfaction scores. We named these two groups as â€œsatisfiedâ€ and â€œunsatisfiedâ€ students. Secondly we investigate the relationships between the satisfaction scores and the academic engagement. By means of T Test we investigate whether the academic engagement differs between the clusters that are determined according to the studentsâ€™ satisfaction scores. Finally we found that academic engagement differs according to the identified clusters.
