Abstract

The topic of grit has been a highly sought after set of traits as it carries positive correlation with individual performance and in turn, has reflected to have a positive impact organizational outcomes. Recently, grit has emerged in higher education as a non-cognitive factor to drive student performance. Relevant research finds that there are variances in student academic performance and race. To determine if grit plays a role within that trend, the following paper examines if a difference exists between grit scores of Asian-American/Pacific Islander in comparison with the general student population.
