Previous research shows that conscientiousness (being organized and thoughtful) is a personality predictor of academic success. We are investigating how the personality trait Grit relates to academic involvement, engagement, and self-efficacy in students. Grit is defined as the propensity to sustain the interest and effort needed to achieve long-term goals (e.g. passion + perseverance). We predict that Grit will be seen more in students who are highly involved on campus. These involved students will also show high academic self-efficacy, which could indicate grit is a moderating factor in the relationship between academic self-efficacy and campus engagement. Conversely, we predict that conscientiousness will uniquely predict academic success “on paper” (i.e. GPA) but not necessarily campus engagement. Conscientiousness should moderate the relationship between academic self-efficacy and GPA.
