Abstract

A student’s perseverance and dedication to successfully completing their goals for academic success are studied to determine if grit may be a measurable qualifying factor used to predict a positive student outcome. This analysis examines how student grit in undergraduate economics courses, along with other control variables, contributes to student success, as measured by their average grade earned in the course. Our results indicate that grit has a statistically significant positive impact on student performance in the classroom.
