Psychosocial Variables and their Relationship with Learning Approaches as Determinants of Academic Performance in College Students
The academic performance of college students is influenced by many factors, including teaching methods and psychosocial factors. Learning approaches refer to the strategies and attitudes that students use in the learning process, while psychosocial factors refer to the emotional, motivational and social aspects that can influence academic performance. Both play an important role in student success at the college level. The research was born with the purpose of evaluating how psychosocial factors can affect the learning approach and, in turn, what the results achieve on their academic performance. Under this panorama, a research was carried out with a quantitative approach, of a descriptive - correlational nature, with a sample of 313 students with a 95% confidence level from a population of 1650. To obtain information that allows validating the research, the survey technique will be applied with a questionnaire that will be validated through an exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. Since academic performance in many cases cannot be measured directly, the aim is to apply the statistical technique of structural equations that determines the relationship of dependence or independence that the variables that intervene in them have through the integration of equations linear.
