Tiivistelmä

Student commitment is a major concern for universities around the world. Research has indicated that students’ psychological attachment to their university, in other words commitment, can be a major predictor of student retention, as well as affecting many other attitudes and types of behavior. This makes university commitment critical to university success. The present study seeks to find out whether there is a relation between students’ grades and the degree of their engagement and commitment, using the Evolute approach. The research group in this study consisted of master’s degree students studying in faculties of Business and Built Environment and Computing and Electrical Engineering. In the newly developed instrument, respondents assessed 124 unique statements regarding their current situation and their vision for the future. This score and its sub-scores are compared in relation to individual course grades.
