Abstract

Existe una creciente atenciÛn sobre la importancia de la personalidad y las habilidades no cognitivas en el futuro personal y profesional de los estudiantes. Estudios recientes relacionan ciertos rasgos de la personalidad con unos mejores resultados acadÈmicos, laborales o de salud. Dada la no observabilidad directa de las habilidades cognitivas y no cognitivas, existe un complejo problema de identifi caciÛn que constituye el principal obst·culo en este campo de investigaciÛn. Encontramos, sin embargo, algunas estrategias para intentar diferenciar las habilidades cognitivas de las no cognitivas. Como apuntan Borghans y Schils (2012), en pruebas estandarizadas como PISA, generalmente los estudiantes responden peor las ˙ltimas preguntas que las primeras. Este decaimiento del rendimiento, no est· relacionado con las competencias evaluadas en la prueba y se usa como una medida de la perseverancia de los estudiantes o de otras habilidades no cognitivas.
