Emotional competence and Student Engagement of the First Year Undergraduate Students in Kerala
This study examines the relationship between emotional competence and student engagement of the first year undergraduate students in Kerala. Research into both student engagement and student emotional competence is on the increase, with widespread agreement that both are critical determinants of student success in higher education. Less researched are the complex, reciprocal relationships between these important influences. The study was conducted among 600 hundred first year undergraduate students from 12 colleges of the four districts of Kerala. The results demonstrate that there is a significant and positive relationship with the variables of the study. The study throws up conclusively that higher the emotional competence better will be the student engagement.
