ABSTRACT

This study sought to determine the mediating role of Academic Achievement Motivation and Technology Use on Perceived Academic Climate and Academic Performance of Polytechnic Students. This study employed the descriptive research design of ex-post facto type. Four hundred and eighty-seven participants selected through the stratified random sampling technique, were used for the study.  Three main instruments were used in collecting data, they are: Achievement Motivation Scale (AMS), Perceived Academic Climate Scale (PACS) and Technology Use Scale (TUS).  The data collected were analyzed using correlation matrix and hierarchical multiple regression analysis in order to establish the relationship of the independent variables with the dependent variables. The results revealed that all the variables: Academic Achievement Motivation (R2 = .149, β = .29, F (2,484) = 5.419, P < .05); Perceived Academic Climate (R2 = .251, β = .57, F (3,483) = 7.003, P < .05); and Students’ Academic Performance (R2 = .156, β = .34, F (4,482) = 2.58, P < .05) separately contributed significantly to the prediction of technological use among the students. Students who reported higher level of academic achievement motivation and perceived the academic climate positively, as well as those with higher level of academic performance showed higher level of technological usage. Based on the findings, recommendation and conclusion were drawn.
