Chadwick, Mona
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lamar University - Beaumont
The purpose of this research is to explore the relationship between math achievement and student resiliency among high school seniors. Seniors from nine school districts in southeast Texas participated by answering a short demographic survey and the "Healthy Kids Resiliency Assessment" (Constantine & Benard, 2001). A total of 457 surveys were returned and matched with the students' exit level Texas Association of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) exam. Descriptive statistics were compiled on all student participants. The data were analyzed using Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients. Results of the study demonstrated correlations with the resiliency scales and subscales with TAKS math most often for males, students with high-socioeconomic status, and White students as contrasted with students who were females, low-SES, or Black and Hispanic ethnicity. Findings also supported the school environment as having the largest correlation with math scores and home environment as having the smallest correlation.
