New title by JCU authors

Dr Nerina Caltabiano, Dr Marie Caltabiano, and Dr Agnes Au
Learning strategies, performance indicators and university student satisfaction: What can psychosocial variables tell us?

The research papers collected in this book are pioneering contributions to understanding what leads to student satisfaction in a university setting. The papers provide insights into:
  • Why students persevere with their studies,
  • Self-efficacy and coping styles that students engage in,
  • The role that locus of control, self-efficacy and trait hope play in student satisfaction,
  • Time management issues,
  • Study and employment management.
These investigations result in significant research findings and highlight some of the issues that confront students and what areas could be a focus to improve student satisfaction during their time at tertiary institutions.

This book is available at JCU Library on Townsville and Cairns campuses.
