School, colleges and universities have no worth without student. Students are most essential
asset for any educational institute. The social and economic development of the country is
directly linked with student academic performance. The determinants of students' performance
have been the subject of ongoing debate among educators, academics, and policy makers. There
have been many studies that sought to examine this issue and the findings of these studies point
out to hard work and discipline, previous schooling, parents‟ education, family income, self
motivation as factors that can explain differences in students' grades. This students‟ performance
(academic achievement) plays an important role in producing the best quality graduates who will
become great leader and manpower for the country thus responsible for the country‟s economic
and social development (Ali et.al, 2009). Determining the factors that affect the student
performance is also important because, primarily institutions and lecturers have to find out ways
to increase student performance, and to motivate students for better performance. In order to do
this, first they need to determine which factors play significant role in student performance. For
example, if attendance increases student performance, lecturers can do something to increase
students‟ attendance rate such as integrating attendance rate into grading policy.
