An Examination of The Relationship Between Academic Achievement And Employment Expectations of University Students

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Verda CANBEY ÖZGÜLER

Abstract


The main objective of this project is to determine the relationship between employment expectation and academic efficiency of university students. To that general objective, this study investigated the whether their academic efficiency levels varied meaningfully depending on several variables as the gender, graduated high school, university, faculty, class, perceptions towards education problems. Also, this study found out whether their employment expectation varied meaningfully depending on several variables as university, faculty and working and no working. The research data was collected through “The Academic Behavior Scale "(ABS), and “Employment Expectations Scale"(EES), developed by the researchers. 27 items were established when developing the ABS, 18 items were established when developing the EES and item total correlation was calculated for scales. 27 items and 18 items found to be meaningful as a result of these analyses were then examined by factor analysis for construct validity of the scales. A three-factor scale (ABS) comprising 16 items and a factor scale (EES) comprising 5 items was obtained as a result of this analysis. Reliability coefficients for the (ABS)whole scale and the three sub-dimensions determined by varimax rotation were calculated through Cronbach α Formula. The Chi-Square test was employed to test the construct validity of the scales could be determined. The findings from this study revealed that the scale is a valid and reliable and that generally university students’ level of agreement with the efficiency and expectation statements in terms of both the scales and the sub dimensions of ABS was upper medium.
