[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Predictive capacity of cognitive-motivational variables about the academic achievement. This study tries to analyse the predictive capacity of a set of cognitive- motivational variables about the students' academic achievement. Among them, we include the following ones: General Intelligence/Aptitudes, Causal Attributions, Academic Self-Concept, Goals and Learning Strategies. The correlational and multiple regression analyses are carried out about the information obtained from a 168 student sample, who are studying the first year of Secondary Obligatory Education in public and private schools of the province of Alicante (Spain). The results show that the variable with the greatest predictive power is General Intelligence/Aptitudes, although Academic Self-Concept, Goals and Learning Strategies own an additional significant contribution to the achievement's explanation. Finally, these results are discussed in terms of their theoretical and practical implications for the improvement of the teaching-learning process
