Academic performance/Achievement' is one of the signicant predictor in the lives of students. It's the outcome of education and it foretells the extent to which the students, teachers and educational institutions have attained their educational goals. Academic achievement is important because it promotes success later and in current life. Among the various influencing factors of academic achievement like socio-economic factors, parent factors, peer factors, school factors, for obtaining an optimal academic achievement, student's academic or learning behavior is an equally important factor in ascertaining the academic achievement of students. It includes student's outlook, choice, his/her persistence, his/her efforts in learning and how he/she relates to the people that make up the school community. Study skills are often determined by the student's learning behavior which affects their learning pattern.

It depends upon the emotional and social climate of the home and school. Good schools make a contribution to develop such climate of learning. Among a variety of factors, such as teacher involvement, parental investment, school quality and student motivation affecting the academic life of students, it is student's academic behavior which plays a major role in academic achievement. It is highlighted that students having disruptive behavior such as bullying other students, talking during lectures or by requiring the teacher to interrupt lessons to discipline them can have a negative effect on entire classroom. STUDENTS BEHAVIOUR Students learn behaviours through the feedback and consequences they receive at home or school. Sometimes feedback or consequences unintentionally reinforce negative behaviours. For example, a teacher responds to a student who frequently calls out in class by giving him more attention, which is what he wants. A good behaviour is important because learning requires behavior that lets you fully participate in the lesson, and allow other students to do work as well. A good student is one that is prepared, active, safe, interacting, and helping. ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE Academic achievement or academic performance is the extent to which a student, teacher or institution has attained their short or long-term educational goals. Completion of educational benchmarks such as secondary school diplomas and bachelor's degrees represent academic achievement. Academic performance is also the measurement of student achievement across various academic subjects. Teachers and education officials typically measure achievement using classroom performance, graduation rates and results from standardized tests. Academic achievement is important for the successful development of young people in society. Students who do well in school are better able to make the transition into adulthood and to achieve occupational and economic success. STUDENTS BEHAVIOUR AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE Education system is rapidly changing where much of the attention currently given to improving students’ academic achievement addresses issues of curriculum, instructional strategies, and interventions or services for students. However, even after addressing these issues, barriers still remain for some students. Approaches aimed at improving school and classroom environments, including reducing the negative effects of disruptive or distracting behaviors, can enhance the chances that effective teaching and learning will occur, both for the students exhibiting problem behaviors and for their classmates. An estimated one-third of students fail to learn because of psychosocial problems that interfere with their ability to fully attend to and engage in instructional activities, prompting a call for new directions for addressing barriers to learning. Increased academic pressure in addition to lots of exposure to audio-visual media has changed the mind set of students alarmingly causing behavioral problems. Schooling is an intrinsically social enterprise. Student behavior is shaped by and exhibited and interpreted in a social context that involves multiple actors viz. teachers, students, school staff etc. It includes multiple settings like classrooms, corridors, common areas, laboratories, lunch room, and playground. Schools are institutions with multiple goals like enhancing academic performance, encouraging a holistic development of the student. Positive behavior is more likely to thrive when relationships at all levels are trusting and supportive and reflect a shared commitment to establish a healthy school and community. Problem behavior of students not only interrupts teacher’s lesson plans but also disturbs other student’s learning process as well as their academic performance. Such students test teacher’s patience as a result many feeling overwhelmed, helpless and make teaching as one of the most difficult aspects of a teacher's job. The most common problem behaviors in the classroom teachers notice are a student's lack of focus, and the inability to sit/stand for an appropria te length of time required for effectively learning. If a student has a great relationship with reading and often chooses leisurely reading, then the student is likely going to score well on any assessment of screeners. “Adolescents’ reading skills play a crucial role in their educational success as most curriculum subjects use text-based materials for study”. If a child is a struggling reader, they are often less motivated to read independently. If the child is less likely to read independently, then they are more likely to continue to struggle. The low academic achievements will often lead to negative behaviors. If these habits continue and the child is not given opportunities to change at a younger age, then they are more likely to continue in this rut. Teacher motivation and early interventions are the ingredients for success for these students. In conclusion, Student’s behavior reflects the interaction of their temperament and inherited personality, the history of their experiences, and the particular nature of each situation. In most circumstances it is impossible to determine what proportion each of these elements contributes to a given manifestation. It also differ in proportions which vary from student to student and even from situation to situation for a single student. Although it is difficult to modify personality of a student having problem behavior, it is possible to modify behavior by identifying and correcting adverse situations in the environment and by introducing appropriate interventions. If adverse environmental conditions are corrected at an early stage, there is a greater possibility of preventing or diminishing their impact on behavioral pattern of student in question.
