Student success is often measured by GPA, classroom attendance and standardized test scores. But studies have shown there is an even more important factor: passion and perseverance, or “grit.” Inspired by a study by psychologist Angela Duckworth, SU student Marrissa Izykiwicz and her mentor, Dr. Anthony Rojas, looked at grit as a predictor of student success in introductory chemistry courses. Their findings could help diversity and inclusion in STEM fields.
