The course Introduction to Economic Statistics is a basic training in a Business Administration degree. It is a common course for the degrees in Economics, Accounting and Finance and Labour Relations and Human Resources, which are also part of the course catalogue of the School of Economics and Business. The course has no prerequisites. It is recommended that the student should be competent in mathematics, in any of its options at secondary (high school) level. The evaluation of the course is based on continuous assessment throughout the course and final exam. The results of final grades are very different between the four degrees. In this study, the differences between the learning and motivational patterns employed by the students of the degrees are analyzed. The correlations of motivation and learning strategies with final grades and/or continuous assessment are exposed. The data were collected thorough the Learning Strategies and Motivation Questionnaire. Participants were 169 undergraduates. The results about the disparities between grades could be useful to correct teaching practices and evaluation performances in some grades.
