SOARES, Adriana Benevides et al. Academic Adaptation of the First Year of Psychology Students. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.2, pp. 513-532. ISSN 1808-4281.

The aim of the study was to verify if the variables academic expectations, satisfaction with academic experience, maturity for professional choice and social skills explain the variable academic adaptation criterion. Participated 212 university students in the 1st year of the Psychology course. The following instruments were used: Academic Experience Questionnaire (AEQ), Academic Expectations Scale for Students in Higher Education (AESSHE), Academic Experience Satisfaction Scale (AESS), Social Skills Inventory (SSI) and Scale of Maturity for the Professional Election (SMPE). Multiple Linear Regression was used for data analysis. It was found that the academic expectations, satisfaction with the academic experience and the social skill impact positively on the academic experiences. There was a positive impact on the Factors of the AESS and Self-knowledge of the SMPE and negative impact of the factor Determination. The present study contributed mainly by showing the importance of the behavior of the variables of the tested model. Once academic adaptation is a multidetermined construct, the results achieved can point to interventions in the reception of university students, considering aspects such as self-knowledge, determination, academic expectations, knowledge of reality and satisfaction with undergraduate education.
