  1. The impact of nonacademic variables on performance at two medical schools.

    Article - En anglais

    Recent research shows that nonacademic variables must be taken into account when analyzing the indicators of medical student success.

    However, most previous studies have been limited to a single institution or population.

    This study investigated the relationship between nonacademic variables and performance at two very different medical schools.

    The Noncognitive Questionnaire was administered to 104 students at School A (predominantly white and historically oriented toward women) and 102 at School B (predominantly black).

    Correlation and multiple regression analyses were conducted to determine the relationship among nonacademic variables, undergraduate academic variables (Medical College Admission Test, undergraduate grade point average, and college quality), basic science grades, and US Medical Licensure Exam Step I (USMLE I) scores.

    At School A, leadership/decisiveness, expected difficulty, and motivation predicted higher USMLE I scores and higher basic science grades each semester.

    At School B, expected difficulty was correlated with higher first semester grades only.

    For School A women, initiative/commitment was positively associated with both higher grades and higher USMLE scores.

    For black students at School B, expected difficulty was positively associated with higher grades.

    Identifying schoolspecific nonacademic variables of performance is critical to developing improved student support services.
