  1. Notes. Except academic engagement was measured by a 4-point Likert scale, all variables were measured based on a 5-point Likert scale (1 = strongly disagree to 5 = strongly agree). Gender coded: 1 = male, 2 = female. Educational status coded: 1 = full-time, 2 = part-time. School category coded: 1 = 985, 2 = 211 nor 985, 3 = neither 985 nor 211. Study degree coded: 1 = master’s degree, 2 = PhD. Reliability coefficients are shown in bold along the diagonal of the table
