Abstract:
This paper tries to study the relationship between Taiwan's technological university students' specialties, genders and academic performances. We consider four constructs: study involving motivation, understanding capability, concentration and attitude toward learning, and study strategies. The empirical results showed that technological university students with different specialties (mathematics specialty; language specialty) and different genders have significant differences in "study involving motivation" and "understanding capability." Language-specialty students have stronger "study involving motivation" than mathematics-specialty students. However, in terms of the "understanding capability" construct, mathematics-specialty students are stronger than language-specialty students. Additionally, the gender factor also has significantly different impacts on the two constructs of "study involving motivation" and "understanding capability." Female students are superior to male students in "study involving motivation," while male students are superior to female students in "understanding capability."
