Quality of School Life: Cause or Effect of Beliefs of Academic Responsibility? A Cross-Lagged Panel Correlation Analysis.
Wolf, Fredric M.; And Others
A sample of 51 fourth graders' perceptions of the quality of their school life, including satisfaction with school, commitment to their classwork, and attitudes toward teachers was assessed at the beginning and end of the school year, as were beliefs concerning responsibility for successful, unsuccessful, and overall academic achievements. Results of an exploratory cross lagged panel correlation analysis provide tentative support for the view that perceptions of these aspects of quality of school life temporally preceeded perceptions of academic responsibility. It is suggested that the more favorably these classroom factors are perceived, the more likely students are to accept responsibility for their school successes and failures. (Author)
