The Relationship between the Academic Performances in Required Major Courses and the Core Courses Achievement of Food Science and Technology Students

N. Prapasuwannakul and K. Bussaban

Abstract—The purpose of this study is to measure the proportion of variation in the academic performance in required major courses form the subjects in core courses of Food Science and Technology students. Data were collected from a sample of 183 online reports of science students graduating from Food Science and Technology Program, Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University during the academic year of 2011-2017. Variables used to construct a regression model were grades of the subjects in core courses and average grades of the subjects in required major courses. The findings revealed that there is a positive significant strong linear relationship between the core courses achievement and the academic performance in required major courses. Organic chemistry, Physical chemistry, Analytical chemistry, Microbiology and Basic biology grades express their strong relationship with academic performance in required major courses. The highest of the proportion of variation in the academic performance is Analytical chemistry.

Index Terms—Academic performance, achievement, core courses, required major courses.
