CAJAS BRAVO, Verónica; PAREDES PEREZ, Marco Antonio; PASQUEL LOARTE, Lorenzo  and  PASQUEL CAJAS, Alexander Frank. Social skills in engagement and academic performance in university students. Comuni@cción [online]. 2020, vol.11, n.1, pp.77-88. ISSN 2219-7168.

The study of the engagement has become one of the main topics of research in academic contexts. The present investigation sought to determine the relationship between engagement and academic performance in university students. The sample population consisted of 298 students from the National University of Central Peru; the instrument used was the UWES scale on academic engagement; to evaluate performance, consolidated averages were used in three professional careers. The results indicate that there is no significant correlation between the variables studied, the correlation being significant at the 0.05 level (bilateral), with a p-value of 0.33. The Spearman correlation shows a non-significant relationship level, with a coefficient of 0.123. Students perform with levels of personal internal motivation; the main conclusion is that despite the adverse conditions and lack of motivation, they maintain a balanced academic performance.

Keywords : social skills; engagement; academic performance.
