Dr. Mohd Yousif Khan


Abstract: Emotional intelligence is crucial for effective functioning. Students who are emotionally stable can allocate and utilize their cognitive resource effectively. In present study data was collected from five hundred ten students (510) of Aligarh district (Uttar Pradesh) through a stratified sampling technique. A standardised scale (EIS; Sharma & Sharma, 2017) was used to measured emotional intelligence while academic achievement was assessed based on GPA (Grade Point Average) at High school level. The researcher used Pearson r and 2?2 factorial design to test hypotheses for meaningful results. The outcome uncovered that there was significant main effect of type of institution on learner academic achievement (AA) and emotional intelligence (EI). Students studying in private schools had higher level of AA and EI than students studying in government school. Furthermore, the interaction effect of type of institution and place of living on AA and EI was found non-significant. The result exhibits that significant positive linear correlation of medium strength (r =.436 p < 0.01) between academic achievement (AA) and emotional intelligence (EI) of students.
