The purpose of the present study was to compare academic conscience and
academic burnout in students with and without learning disabilities. This is
a comparative case-control study. The statistical population of this research
includes all students with and without learning disabilities in Rasht city
during the academic year of 1391-1392. Using a multi-stage random cluster
sampling method, a study sample of 80 second and third grade guidance
students (40 with learning disability and 40 normal) was selected from
second and third grade guidance students among students in Rasht city. The
data were collected using the researcher constructed tests for reading,
writing and math evaluation, academic conscience scale, academic burnout
scale and Raven’s progressive Matrices. Multivariate analysis of variance
(MANOVA) was used to analize and describe the data. The results showed
that there is a significant difference between the two groups of students with
regard to academic conscience and academic burnout. This finding has
important implications for educational planning and planning for
educational mental health of students with learning disabilities.
