Coping Styles and Achievement: A Cross-National Study of School Children: Volume V of VII Volumes (5A and 5B): A Replication Study of Coping in Eight Countries.
Peck, Robert F.; And Others
The Cross-National Study of Coping Styles and Achievement was designed to develop a conceptual system for describing effective coping behavior in several cultures; to develop measures of coping style and coping effectiveness which would be uniformly applicable in the various cultures; and to determine the relationship of such coping behavior to academic, social and vocational values in each country. The first two objectives were successfully met during the first two years of the study. A diversified battery was then developed for assessing these characteristics among children in the several countries. Volume II described results of applying that battery to 6,400 children in seven countries in 1965-1966. A revised battery was then applied to a new sample of 3,600 children in eight countries during 1968-1969: England; Italy; Japan; Mexico; West Germany; Chicago and Austin, Texas, U.S.A. This volume, the fifth of seven, reports the findings from the 1968-1969 sample and compares them with the findings from the 1965-1966 sample. A cross-national analysis describes those characteristics which showed unique national patterns. The final section of this volume discusses some major implications of the findings for educational and social practice. (Author/CJ)
