Влияние некогнитивных характеристик на выбор траекторий в высшем образовании: взгляд экономистов

Вопросы образования. 2021. № 3. С. 138-167.

The article presents a review of literature systematizing findings on the contribution of non-cognitive skills to higher education choice-making. The concept of higher education choice-making in this paper embraces the decision to embark on a college degree, the probability of successful degree completion, the choice of academic discipline, and other related aspects. A priority focus is given to publi- cations in economics since the economic approach differs a lot from approaches in other social sciences.

In addition, the article explores the methodological characteristics of non-cognitive skills research in economics. The results of literature analysis point to the relevance of non-cognitive skills in explaining individual educational choices and allow drawing some inferences for education policy.
