Psychological Aspects of Student Performance : Learning from Studies in an Indonesian Context
The rise in global competition demands an increase in education quality.
Education institutions are thus required to think more about how they can improve their student performances.
One factor that has been found to play a vital role in increasing performance is psychological factors.
While previous literature has extensively discussed this issue in Western contexts and some countries in Asia (e.g., Singapore and China), few extant works of literature attempt to understand it in Indonesian contexts.
This book will attempt to fill the gap by discussing empirical evidence of the role of parent and peer supports, academic self-efficacy, performance goal orientation, college adjustment, cognitive process, self-control, psychological distress, differential feedback, and involvement in college organizations.
Student performances are discussed in the various levels of educations, from primary schools to higher education.
