An analysis of some factors affecting student academic performance in an introductory biochemistry course at the University of the West Indies Victor Mlambo Abstract High failure rates at tertiary institutions result in unacceptable levels of attrition, reduced graduate throughput and increased cost of training a nation's labour force.
It is imperative that diagnostic studies are carried out to identify the major factors that are associated with suboptimal academic performance with a view of instituting corrective measures. This study was, therefore, designed to identify and analyse some determinants of academic performance as measured by coursework exam grades in an introductory biochemistry AGRI course plagued by chronic high failure rates.
The course is offered to first year undergraduate students in the Faculty of Science and Agriculture at the University of the West Indies, St. The effect of learning preference, age, gender, and entry qualifications on academic performance measured as the final coursework mark obtained was determined.
None of the investigated factors significantly affected academic performance. This observation could be a consequence of an impressive performance in the coursework exams by a large proportion of students resulting in less variation in the recorded grades.
Learning preferences were found to be independent of both the age and gender of students.
It was concluded that more determinants of academic performance need to be investigated and that students who are admitted based on a diploma in agriculture may need a remedial course given that their coursework grades, though statistically insignificant were consistently lower than that of the other students.
