ABSTRACT:
In the previous research, it was proved that there were so many factors like students’ personal characteristics, learning habits, previous academic background, family background, college environment etc. which influence directly or indirectly the students’ performance in their university examination. In this paper the numbers of such factors have been identified by studying the previous work carried out by different researchers in different geographical areas and boundaries of the world. Also the opinions of the students and teaching faculties have been considered to explore more relevant factors. More than 200 influencing factors were identified, out of which only 75 factors were shortlisted in consultation with the experts. A preliminary survey was conducted to know the importance of these factors in the success or failure of students in university examination. 119 students and 72 teaching faculties have participated in this survey. The collected data was further analyzed by using different statistical tools such as descriptive analysis, independent t-test, one way ANOVA with the help of SPSS Statistics 20, a statistical software package. Finally 22 important influencing factors have been identified by using results of statistical analyses and discussions with experts. These identified factors were used to design a questionnaire to formulate the model to correlate students’ performance in university examination.
