OLIVEIRA, Katya Luciane de; SANTOS, Acácia Aparecida Angeli dos  and  INACIO, Amanda Lays Monteiro. Academic adaptation and intellectual styles in higher education. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.3, suppl.1, pp. 73-89. ISSN 2236-6407.

Academic and intellectual development during the university course can be greatly favored if they have the necessary adaptation to the new context. The present research aimed to verify the academic adaptation and the intellectual styles of university students, identifying possible differences in relation to the chosen courses, as well as to analyze the correlations between the dimensions of academic adaptation and the prevalent intellectual styles. Participants included 628 students from different courses and universities, who responded collectively to two scales. The first evaluated the academic adaptation to higher education, with five dimensions: career planning, social adaptation, personal/emotional adaptation, adaptation to study, and institutional adaptation. The second evaluated intellectual styles, with thirteen possible styles. The results showed that the highest score was in career planning and hierarchical style. Significant differences by course, as well as correlations between variables were observed. The data are discussed from the point of view of psychoeducational evaluation.

Keywords : undergraduates; academic adaptation; intellectual styles.
