Different Impact on Academic Achievement in Secondary School Students in Rural and Urban Areas of Jaipur District

Brotati Chakraborty, Dr. Manju Sharma.


Education is considered imperative for not only the progress of the individuals, but also for the development of community and nation. In order to bring about improvements in all aspects, and utilize modern and innovative techniques and methods, individuals need to generate awareness and enhance their educational skills. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between academic achievement motivation and home environment among standard 10th pupils. The study was carried out on standard 10th from urban and rural secondary schools randomly selected from Jaipur district. Their age ranged between 15 and 18 years. Two questionnaires, Academic Achievement Motivation Test and home environment questionnaire were used to provide information on the pupil’s levels of academic motivation and home environment. A significant (p < 0.05) positive relationship was found between different factors of the home environmental, that is father’s occupation (r = 0.24), mother’s education (r = 0.19), father’s education (r = 0.16) teacher & students relation (r = 0.29) and academic achievement motivation. Parental encouragement was the only factor that was not significantly (r = 0.04) related to academic achievement motivation. Although these correlations are low, they showed that pupils’ motivation to do well in academic work is to some extend dependent on the nature of their home environment. It was recommended that parents need to be aware of the importance of their role in their children’s academic achievement motivation so that they can provide the necessary facilities at home.
