Abstract

The article discusses the possibility of determination of the factors, influencing academic performance, for the purpose of their management in the course of students learning at a higher educational institution. The factors are divided into two groups: internal, defined by the personality of a student, and external, set by the environment he is surrounded by. 27 factors are planned by theoretical analysis a priori. Sampling observation was conducted to gather statistical information about students of Novosibirsk State University of Economics and Management: theoretical questions, scheme and tools of the sample design were developed; a survey was carried out. On the basis of the gathered statistical data time budget of a student is studied, average time expenditure is calculated for studies on weekdays and at the weekend depending on the gender, course, basis, direction and average grade in the last examination period. The characteristic of academic performance on the developed scale by courses is given, it is also estimated by average grade in the last examination period, and its dynamics over a period of students training is visible. The significant factors, influencing academic performance, both generally and by courses, were revealed using Pearsons 2-criterion, and their correlation ratio is estimated on the basis of the value of Cramers V. The factorial analysis makes it possible select main factors using load values. The data were processed in «STATISTICA 10 software package.
