      The Question

      How much does students' self-discipline affect their academic achievement?

      The Context

      Student motivation and engagement play an important role in learning and
      academic achievement. Closely related to motivation is self-discipline,
      the ability of students to monitor and control their own behaviors.
      Students who are highly self-disciplined may be able to better focus on
      long-term goals and make better choices related to academic engagement.

      The Bottom Line

      Students with a strong sense of self-discipline significantly outperformed
      their less-disciplined peers on a range of academic indicators, including
      grades, achievement test scores, and attendance. Additionally,
      self-discipline appears to be a better predictor of academic gain than is
      intelligence (as measured by an IQ test).

      Who's Affected?

      Students in the 8th grade were the focus of this study.
