AbstractThe goal of this study is to investigate university students’ Academic Achievement Motivation and Self-Efficacy to better understand its relationship to long-term Academic and Career Success. In addition to a literature review, this project consists of a research study proposal entailing a methodology section, data analysis plan, expected/hypothetical results (no data was collected, mock data was used), and a discussion. The literature review will summarize recent research on Academic Achievement Motivation and Self-Efficacy’s role in academic achievement, graduation rates, and post-graduate employment rates to better explore the relationship between Self-Efficacy and long-term academic/career goals. The implication of this research is to shed light on the importance of a student’s perceived Self-Efficacy and its importance in college so that universities can implement methods to allow students to be more self-efficacious and thereby make students more successful. Lastly, limitations of the study and directions for future research are discussed.
