Motivation, Attitude and Language Proficiency as Predictors of Students Academic Success: A Case Study of Undergraduate Students at the University of Bahrain

Auther : Saif Al-Ansari , Ali Lori

The purpose of the study reported here was to investigate the relation between the academic success of a sample of undergraduate Bahraini University students and their attitudes and motivation in learning English. Results of the study demonstrate a positive association between their attained proficiency in the language and their overall academic achievement at the undergraduate level. Their attitudes and motivations towards English did not act as predictors of their academic success. However, only their attained proficiency in the language tended to act as a predictor of academic success at the University. These results were also found to be true of the higher achievers. As far as the less successful students are concerned, their GPA was found to be slightly correlating with their motivation to learn the language. Apart from this, no significant correlation was found between any of the attitudinal/motivational and their proficiency in English. In this report, the background and rationale of the study were first discussed and an analysis and interpretation of the statistical findings were then presented. Finally, the methodological implications of the findings for the less successful learners were considered.
