Students' Academic Motivation and Grade Estimation Accuracy in HAP ClassesPoster presented at the Annual HAPS conference (2014)
The study investigated student academic motivation using the adapted Academic Motivation Scale (AMS) and examined differences between student expected grade and actual grades in an undergraduate Human Anatomy and Physiology (HAP) class. Results showed that only the Stimulation subscale of the AMS changed over time, while estimated GPA, expected grade, hours studying, HAPI or II and introjected and external subscales of the AMS were significant predictors of final grades. Across both HAPI and HAPII, 75% of students overestimated their final grade. Three variables were significant in predicting the grade difference: class sequence (HAPI vs. HAPII); GPA and study hours.
