Underneath the broad umbrella of social interactions and learning, variants can range from peer learning, reciprocal teaching, learning by teaching, learning by observation, learning by doing, and self–other monitoring. These areas overlap in scholarship and are often an optimal way to help students . Given research has proven student motivation to be a predictor of academic achievement, this exploratory study surveyed the academic and social achievement goal orientations of Year 11 students . Abstract The benefits of social learning have been recognized by existing research.

The investigator is interested in knowing the relationship between social maturity and academic achievement of the higher secondary students. Both academic achievement and social maturity are equally important. In this context the present study assumes a greater significance. Social ties that students have among each other have been found to have effects on academic achievement (Broh ), such that positive social interactions in the school environment spill over into how well they do in their schoolwork. It has been said earlier that most slow learners enter into schools with needs of achievement and success to counteract their loss of confidence and sense of inadequacy. Many children are able to achieve success or have it contrived for them in one or other creative activities. On this foundation the academic achievement can be based.
