INFLUENCE OF AGE, EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND AND MOTIVATION TOWARDS STUDENTS ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS DURING THEIR SECOND YEAR AT AKPER YATNA YUANA (UNIVERSITY)

Sarma Eko Natalia Sinaga

Abstract


Academic achievement is measured by educators through the use of symbols or numbers. These numbers and symbols are then used to determine a “grade” or “raw score” that quantify the amount of learning and understanding that has taken place. Researchers analyzed the student population and determined external factors, such as age, educational background, and motivation, that may or may not play a factor in the students raw score. The methodology used by the researcher’s study was “Approach Cross - Sectional.” The study’s sampling size was 77 respondents and constituted the University’s total second-year undergraduate student body population (100 percent sampling) enrolled in semester IV, academic year 2016/2017. The research, conducted in March 2017, took place at the University. Data analysis was completed using univariate and bivariate analysis utilizing the statistical T-Test. After careful analysis, the research suggests that there is an influence between the students educational background and their raw scores (P= 0,034).
