Developmental Academic Advising: Involvement of Advisor, Professor and Classmates

Abstract

This study examined the possibility of developing an academic advising system based on the impact of perception of others on university students’ consciousness and motivation. It is hypothesized that students’ knowledge of how they are perceived by classmates, academic advisors and professors makes them more conscious and motivated towards certain perceivable characteristics that affect their future life and academic achievement. 15 different perceivable characteristics were selected for the purposes of this study. The application included two administrations; one at the beginning and one at the end of the semester. Results compared students participating in the study with other classmates. All the results were sent to students conidentially in order to make students more motivated and conscious after each administration.
