Abstract Student performance has become an increasingly important topic in higher education as it relates to retention and graduation rates and as university administrators place emphasis upon performance as the basis for budgeting. Pressures from accreditation agencies and prospective employers as well as increased competition within higher ed between institutions and virtual universities also direct attention to student performance. The purpose of this research was to determine to what extent students ' motivation, ability, and level of optimism influence performance and to investigate the interactive effects of ability and motivation as well as ability and optimism on student performance perceptions.
