AbstractThis study explores the influence of learning environment factor and academic involvement factor on students’ learning outcomes. The sample includes 3,946 undergraduates in Xi’an Jiaotong University. The variables about learning environment, academic involvement and learning outcomes are constructed in terms of the questionnaire “Xi’an Jiaotong University Undergraduate Experience Survey”. The study results indicate that learning environment and academic involvement significantly influence students’ learning outcomes. Meanwhile, the practical and policy significance of this study results in promoting students’ learning and development is also discussed.
