A study of the relationship between study attitudes and methods and grade point average of undergraduate hearing-impaired students at CSUN
A study of Grade Point Averages recently completed by CSD has shown that the hearing-impaired students at CSUN have achieved at the same levels as the general university student population. Stated another way, hearing-impaired students show the normal distribution of grades as do the other students. This kind of finding has led to questions concerning the characteristics which distinguish high-achieving and low-achieving hearing-impaired students. Specifically, the purpose of the study is to determine the relationship between study attitudes and methods, as measured by the Study Attitudes and Methods Survey (SAMS), and academic achievement, as measured by cumulative GPA of undergraduate hearing-impaired students at CSUN.
