Examining the Learning Environment and Academic Performance in a Tertiary 3D Animation Course in Macau

Kuan-Chen Tsai


A significant effort has been made to study the impacts of the learning environment on students’ academic performance. The main purpose of the current study was to investigate the possible link between the learning environment in a university and learning outcomes in students Chinese educational settings. The sample used in this study consisted of 128 students (recruiting from the third-year art and design program) from one private university in Macau. The results of the Pearson correlation showed us that the students’ perception of their learning environment was not related to their academic performance. When we treated gender, residency status, and students’ perception of their learning environment as independent variables to predict their academic performance, we again found that in the regression model, students’ perception of their learning environment could not predict their academic performance. A number of limitations were also discussed; as a result, the interpretation of this study should be considered tentative.
