Home Environment and Achievement Motivation and their Effect on the Academic Performance of Selected Students of PSHS-BRC

Publisher: Bicol University

The family has an important role in children’s cognitive performance and academic achievement (Alves, Gomes, Martins, & Almeida, 2017) while achievement motivation is positively correlated to academic achievement (Fini & Yousefzadeh, 2011; Amrai, Motlagh, Zalini & Parhon, 2011; Wang & Lin, 2008; Chowdhury & Shahabuddin, 2007; Hasan & Sarkar, 2018). Using case study method, this study aimed to determine the home environment and achievement motivation of selected students of PSHS BRC, and how these affect their academic performance as well as their challenges, support received or sought, and the commonalities in their experiences and challenges. The participants were randomly selected Grade 10 and 11 students of PSHS-BRC during the AY 2019-2020. Data were gathered using validated researcher-made questionnaire, adopted Achievement Motivation Inventory (Muthee & T homas, 2009), and informal interview. Results reveal that the selected students of PSHS-BRC have commonalities in their home environment profile, have satisfactory or better academic performance; and generally have moderate level of achievement motivation. Most of the challenges encountered in school deal with academic course work and dealing with teachers. Students have commonalities in experiences and challenges in terms of academic coursework, dealing with teacher, financial and motivational aspects. Home environment through family support and achievement motivation affect their academic performance favorably. Students generally receive support from peers, family and teachers through advice or encouragement. It is recommended that academic support system be provided or strengthened to further improve the academic performance of the students, and that the school adopt strategies so students will be able to better open up their concerns and challenges to the concerned school personnel.
