Abstract

The ability to persevere and achieve one’s goals has been studied throughout social and cognitive psychological research, which has found that motivation, effort, resilience, and personal characteristics (e.g., optimism, creativity, and confidence), coined as grit, are associated with achievement. While completion rates in higher education have slightly increased over time, institutional leaders are still challenged with the issue of low rates in academic success, retention, and completion. To alleviate this challenge, institutions are seeking supplemental academic support services and are looking to identify behaviors that lead to increased academic performance. Research supports that motivation and study habits have positive impacts on academic performance. The following study examined the relationship between study habit behaviors and identified whether differences exist between students based on level of grit.
