Abstract

This research examines the relationship of Achievement Motivation Profiles and a student's ability to persist through their chosen curriculum to graduate within an appropriate time. A population of 2010 Academic Year graduates from Newberry College were asked to complete the Achievement Motivation Profile. Comparison between achievement motivation profiles and ACT/SAT and GPA scores to determine which variable is a significant predictor of group membership showed no relationship between the variables and therefore no correlation can be made between Achievement Motivation and entrance exams and scores.
