Abstract:
The study investigated the educational attitudes, abstract and concrete, and the perceptions of the quality of academic life of students from Taiwan studying in the United States. The Educational Belief Questionnaire (EBQ) and Perceived Quality of Academic Life (PQAL) were administered to 161 Taiwan students attending an American university. Three null hypotheses were tested in light of the obtained data. Results indicated no significant differences in their perceptions of the academic quality of life irrespective of their background or personal characteristics. With regard to the major area of the study, the students did, however, differ in their attitudes toward education. In general, all students seemed to have positive attitudes toward education. The educational level of subjects emerged as the significant predictor of academic achievement (GPA) of Taiwanese students. The implications of these findings for foreign students attending American universities were discussed.
