Self-Management as a Predictor of Student Performance

Elena Petanova 

Faculty of Psychology

Saint Petersburg State University

St. Petersburg, Russia

Abstract—This article reviews the study of predictors in fist-year students’ academic performance with its index being calculated on the basis of their interim academic success assessments on two fields of study. The self-management capacity was determined by the methods of N. Peisakhov, and the sampling included 55 first-year students of the economic faculty of St-Petersburg State University (40 women and 15 men). The quantitative analysis was conducted using the descriptive statistics and regression analysis. The study revealed that the self-management operation ‘forecasting’ could be considered the predictor of student performance.

Keywords—students; student performance; self-management operations; academic performance predictors.
