Abstract


Academic achievement is of paramount importance particularly in the present socio-economic and cultural content. It is the activity, which is accomplished especially superior ability, special efforts and great value. It plays significant role in almost all aspects of human life. It has assumed enormous importance in view of its practical value. There are various social, cultural, administrative and financial constraints responsible to effect academic achievement. Measuring academic performance of teacher trainees is challenging since student performance is product of cognitive and non-cognitive constructs which includes socio-economic, psychological and environmental factors. Present paper has been based on the study conducted on teacher trainees. Parental involvement has been studied by using parental involvement scale by Chopra and Sahoo (2005). The findings reveal that parental involvement has a significant positive impact on the academic achievement of the teacher trainees irrespective to their gender.
