Relationship between Satisfaction with Major, Academic Performance and Congruence

Congruence is measured as a comparison between one’s score on an interest inventory and one’s chosen major in this study. 589 college students come from 11 majors of 3 universities in Beijing are measured by Vocational Interest Inventory of China (VIIC) developed by National Education Examinations Authority (NEEA). Data of satisfaction with major and academic performance are also collected. We explore the relationship between satisfaction with major and congruence index, as well as academic performance and congruence index. The results are as following: 1. Congruence between interest and major has positive influence on satisfaction with major. High congruent students have more satisfaction with major than others. 2. Congruence between interest and major also has positive influence on academic performance. High congruent students get better score than others. And 3. Satisfaction with major has partial mediation on the relationship between congruence and academic performance. Congruence between interest and major is very important, results we got will benefit for individual’s career development and school counseling.
