The Skill of Making a Decision and its Relationship of Academic Achievement Among Students
Keywords:Decision-making skill, Academic achievement.
This research aims to know the essence of the correlative relationship between decision-making skills and academic achievement among students of computer science departments in the colleges of education in the Baghdad governorate. The size of the research sample of students in the two colleges amounted to (200) male and female students distributed by (104) male and (96) female students. To measure the decision-making skill and academic achievement, the researcher built two tests, the first to measure the decision-making skill, and the second an achievement test in the numerical analysis subject prescribed for second-year students, Department of Computer Science, and the validity and reliability of each test was verified. After collecting and analyzing the data, the researchers concluded that the students of the computer science departments in the colleges of education in the province of Baghdad possessed the decision-making skill compared to the hypothetical average that was compared, while the female students outperformed the male students in the decision-making skill test that was prepared for this research. And their achievement is good compared to the hypothetical average that was compared, while the female students outperformed the male students in the achievement test for the subject of numerical analysis. There is a correlation between the decision-making skill and the academic achievement of the students as a whole. However, there is no correlation between the decision-making skill and the students' academic achievement, while there is an inverse correlation between the decision-making skill and the student's achievement. The research reached several recommendations.
