Elementary School Students' Attitudes toward Student Achievement: A Focused Study on Social Ecological Variables
Thomas, Michele Lynette
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The purpose of the quantitative survey design study was to examine key social ecological care variables that are related to the domains of neighborhood (neighbors who care), school (teachers who care, a fun place to learn, and a fun place to be with other children), friends (friends who care, accepted by other children, and friends have good behavior), and family (family who care) that could predict student achievement. The key social ecological care variables were predetermined by Natasha Bowen, the creator of the Elementary School Success Profile (ESSP). A group of students in third, fourth, and fifth grade were surveyed using the ESSP. The quantitative study took place in a school within the Southeastern part of the United States. The results from the survey were based on the responses of the 47-item survey. The analysis of the survey found that variables inside and outside of school have an effect on student achievement.
