ABSTRACT

The present study is an attempt to assess the level of Educational Aspiration and Academic Achievement Motivation of Visually Impaired secondary school students of Indore district of Madhya Pradesh state. The level of educational aspiration and Academic Achievement Motivation of Visually Impaired is considered as an indicator of the success of students. 100 Visually Impaired students from private and government schools were drawn by employing simple random techniques. To assess the level of Educational Aspirations and Academic Achievement Motivation educational aspiration scale (Form P) developed by Dr V.P. Sharma and Dr Anuradha Gupta and academic achievement motivation test constructed by Dr T.R. Sharma, were used. The obtained data were analyzed by using mean, SD and F test. The finding of the study revealed that both visually impaired boys and girls have by and large equal education aspiration. Visually impaired girls have better academic achievement motivation than visually impaired boys. These findings will be useful for a range of stakeholders such as educationists, policy makers, teachers, parents, etc.
