ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The topic of this research study was academic achievement of adolescents and the 40 Developmental Assets. Developmental Assets have been associated with positive growth in adolescents by protecting adolescents from negative influences, as well as promoting healthy and positive development. This study attempted to refine and identify the role the 40 Developmental Assets played in academic achievement among students at one junior high school in a moderately sized Midwestern city. While the results of this research did not demonstrate a positive correlation between any of the 8 Assets and academic achievement, disaggregated data did show some correlations which may be the starting point for future research.
