Investigating The Determinants Of Student Academic Performance: A Study On Comilla University
This study seeks to investigate firstly to recognize the institutional and significant competences (influencing factors) that have allowed students to achieve better academic performance, and secondly, the interrelationship between student academic performance and the influencing factors. This study identified social support, student psychology, and self-esteem as determinants of academic performance of students. If it is true, students should concern about self-reliance, and sound mental health. Educational institutions should ensure proper educational support and environment. Families as well as society should concern about family and social relationship and environment. Theoretical framework and hypotheses have been developed by considering the positive relationship of determinants and outcome of academic performance of students with the support of relevant theories and existing literatures. Data were collected from one public university namely, Comilla University through questionnaire survey. Principal component analysis (PCA) and structural equation modeling (SEM) including confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), and path analysis were applied to assess the reliability and validity of models and test the proposed hypotheses of the study. The empirical results provided supportive evidence in favor of the hypotheses and theoretical arguments. The study found positive relationships among social support, student psychology, self-esteem, and academic performance of undergraduate level students.
