dc.description.abstractWithin academia few constructs are so often talked about yet so poorly understood as academic entitlement. Using AE scales, this study evaluates the latent variables of AE in grading as well as the relationship of these factors to demographic variables including gender, nationality, and age. Using a factor analysis, three latent variables were found including effort expectancy (EE), academic sociopathy (AS), and negotiation (Ne). Analysis revealed reliable relationships between these factors and the demographic variables. These results suggest trends in the level and type of AE based on gender, age and ethnic identity, therefore, it may be possible to combat AE conflict with awareness of expectations and communication about rights and responsibilities of the student and instructor.
