This report summarizes findings from a study of the psychometric properties of the resilience and youth development module, a key component of the Healthy Kids Survey. The study aims to improve resilience assessment and research so that educators can shape the school environment to promote academic resilience. The Healthy Kids Survey (HKS) is a comprehensive student self-report tool for monitoring the school environment and student health risks. This report focuses on one module of the survey, the resilience and youth development module (RYDM), which assesses environmental and internal assets associated with positive youth development and school success. The report describes the results of these analyses, makes recommendations on the proper use of the instrument, and suggests modifications to improve the module. The following are appended: (A) Analytic Strategy; (B) Results; (C) Results and Model Selection Details; (D) Other Assessments of Resilience and Related Factors; and (E) Detailed Tables. (Contains 2 boxes, 6 figures, 42 tables, and 18 notes.)
