Abstract

Purpose: With the changing perspective in modern education systems, success means more than grades and includes emotional, social, cognitive, and academic development. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of personal factors (academic self-efficacy, organization and attention to study, time utilization, classroom communication, stress and emotional components, student involvement with college life) in predicting student success. Method: Three hundred and seventeen college students participated in the study, and a demographic information form and the College Learning Effectiveness Inventory (CLEI) were used.
