Then review the synopsis and answer the related questions. According to Rice University researchers, conscientious students are more likely to have higher grade point averages. Researchers looked at previous studies that explored the link between the big five personality traits (neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness) and college grade point average. They found that different personality tests revealed the positive correlation between conscientiousness, which is usually characterized as being disciplined and achievement oriented, and grade point average. Tests found that the other four personality traits were not linked to grade point average.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
