Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. consider the potential applications of the results of this study.
  2. explore the important contribution of past academic achievement in noncognitive research.
  3. evaluate future noncognitive research in light of the consideration of past academic achievement.

Description

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of academic enablers as predictors of current and future academic achievement for students with learning disabilities, while controlling for past achievement, and to consider academic self-concept as an academic enabler. When controlling for the past achievement, academic enablers and academic self-concept did not contribute any significant additional variance. Participants will benefit from discussion about the importance of considering and controlling for past achievement.
