ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between parental involvement in academic success as determined by grade point average and Michigan high school students' perception of parent involvement with school, participation in homework, recognition of academic success, knowledge of school policies, and support of participation in extracurricular activities. This non-experimental quantitative study evaluated the relationship between parental involvement and academic success as measured by grade point average (GPA) and high school students' perception through the use of multiple regression analysis. A modified version of the Parent and School Survey (PASS) instrument was used with a sample of 103 high school students. Multiple regression analysis revealed a negative significant relationship between parental involvement in extracurricular activities and academic success as determined by GPA and high school students' perception. A 31 item Likert scale of the PASS instrument resulted in outcomes that showed no significant relationship between parental involvement with school, homework, recognition of academic success, and knowledge of school policies and a negative significant relationship between students perceived parental involvement in extracurricular activities and academic success as determined by GPA and high school students' perception. As a result future recommendations for research included a qualitative research study to better understand students' perception of parental involvement, as well as a larger sample to address the findings of a non-significant relationship among 4 of the 5 variables.
