This study aimed to explore students’ attitudes toward evaluation during the examination and assessment process in universities. A questionnaire was created and validated to evaluate perceptions of the importance of university evaluations from an individual perspective as mediated by the external environment. The questionnaire also intended to assess emotional experiences related to the evaluation phase and the influence of external elements, such as expectations, self-efficacy and internal or external locus of control on the final results. The answers of a sample of over 700 students from several universities in Milan were subjected to factor analysis. Eight factors were thus individualized and interpreted. Reliability analysis helped to discard inefficient items. The questionnaire presented satisfactory reliability and can be used with undergraduate students

Abstract

This study aimed to explore students’ attitudes toward evaluation during the examination and assessment process in universities. A questionnaire was created and validated to evaluate perceptions of the importance of university evaluations from an individual perspective as mediated by the external environment. The questionnaire also intended to assess emotional experiences related to the evaluation phase and the influence of external elements, such as expectations, self-efficacy and internal or external locus of control on the final results. The answers of a sample of over 700 students from several universities in Milan were subjected to factor analysis. Eight factors were thus individualized and interpreted. Reliability analysis helped to discard inefficient items. The questionnaire presented satisfactory reliability and can be used with undergraduate students
