Learning is defined as gaining knowledge or modifying behavioral tendencies through study, instruction, experience or conditioning (Merriam-Webster On-Line, 2009). Accordingly, the learning process is not limited to conscious intellectual activity, but is affected by a wide variety of internal, external, environmental and experiential factors. In this study, we explore student perceptions of the factors that affect their academic success. Our ultimate goal is to develop a survey that captures these perceptions. Previous research as well as the results of a short, preliminary pilot survey (described in the "Methodology" section) will guide our survey development. Once the survey instrument is complete, our intention is to administer the survey first to students in our discipline and later to a wider cross-section of students.
