A Study on Factors Affecting Learning Persistence Intension of University Students
Keywords:learning persistence, learning self-efficacy
This study suggests practical measures to colleges and universities in plight of declining number of students. We collected and inquired into specific factors that affect learning persistence. The result of analysis on those factors affecting learning persistence proposes learning efficacy, academic major satisfaction, and school satisfaction as statistically significant ones.
The measures to maintain attending ratio and reduce dropouts rates based on the result above can be suggested as follows. First, the precondition is to select students with basic learning ability to follow major courses.
Second, to maintain learning, it is more important than any others that the enrolled students are given in each school customized approaches to majors that have stress on correlation with individualsâ€™ grades for satisfaction found in major courses and motivation to focus on learning by highlighting strong points of the majors.
Last, it will be helpful to carry out image-making or public promotion activities that may encourage pride in their schools. To add, expansion of welfare programs or amenities for students are considered to help increase studentsâ€™ will to keep learning.
