What is

Student Achievement

Student achievement is the measurement of the amount of academic content a student learns in a given time frame. Each instruction level has specific standards or goals that educators must teach to their students. Achievement is usually assessed through frequent progress and comprehension checks and examinations, however, there is no consensus on how it is best evaluated or which elements of it are most important.

Student achievement refers to the extent to which a learner has attained their short or long-term educational goals. Individual differences in academic performance are strongly correlated with differences in personality and intelligence. As well, students’ levels of self-efficacy, self-control and motivation also impact levels of achievement.
