Student Involvement and the Psychological Experience of the High School.
Nover, Michael L.
The role of the school in the fostering of competence and psychological well-being in students is of primary concern to school psychologists. Adolescents' involvement in high school extracurricular activities was examined to determine their effect on socialization and possible relationships with demographic patterns and high school performance. A questionnaire administered to New England high school students showed that students who were from high socioeconomic status families and were seniors were most involved. Student involvement was related to school experience and performance, including academic success. The findings offer some support for considering involvement as a mediating variable. (Author/JAC)
