dc.description.abstractIn the competitive landscape of higher education, student success is becoming an ever more important element in achieving and maintaining university reputation, accreditation and quality of teaching. Investigating the determinants of student success can help with better course design, adaptation of teaching techniques and program improvements. In this study, we examine students' use of the learning resources available to them and whether they have a significant impact on students' success in an undergraduate finance course. We find that class attendance, the online streaming of recorded classes, and reading the relevant textbooks all remain important strategies to achieve course success even after controlling for students' cognitive and English language abilities.
