Abstract: This study investigated generic competences predicting students’ learning outcomes and labour market performance. The literature revealed four predictive self-reported concepts: self-efficacy, selfregulating learning capabilities, self-directing learning capabilities, and self-directing career capabilities. However, there was a lack of conceptually clarity, in combination with a lack of empirical evidence on how the concepts were related. Hence we departed from the four respective theoretical frameworks to safeguard the content validity, constructed theory-based items and scientific measures, using the Rasch model, and modelled the constructs in a structural equation model. Our models revealed a dynamic intra-individual causal system in which self-efficacy and self-regulating learning capabilities are predictors of self-directing learning capabilities that operate as a mediator towards grade point average. Self-efficacy acts as a significant direct predictor of achieved European Credit Transfer System credits (ECTS). Self-directing career capabilities showed to be two-dimensional.
