Abstract

JIMENEZ, Martha; PEREZ, Francisco  and  GOMEZ, Pilar. Analysis technological factors on the academic performance in a public university in Mexico City. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.6, pp.255-266. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062020000600255.

The objective of the present study was to analyze technological and social factors that help university students improve academic performance. The sample consisted of 249 students from a public university in Mexico City. A multiple linear regression model was performed to examine the impact of academic performance variables. The results showed that the variables that most helped students in achieving higher academic performances were: age, scholarship access, student salary (part-time jobs), and availability of professors that use digital platforms. The variables that showed a negative impact on student academic performance were: having a full-time job, having a tech device for gaming, failing a class, and failing a semester. As a conclusion, it is recommended that professors use digital platforms in their academic activities to help their students achieve better academic performances.

Keywords : academic performance; social networks; university students; digital platforms.
