Adolescents' Perceptions of Middle School: Relation to Longitudinal Changes in Academic and Psychological Adjustment.
Roeser, Robert W.; Eccles, Jacquelynne S.
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v8 n1 p123-58 1998
Studied relationships between adolescents' perceptions of their middle school (school goal structures, autonomy provisions, positive teacher regard) and changes in academic motivation, achievement, and psychological adjustment. Found perceptions to be important predictors; for example, perception of positive teacher regard and an emphasis on individual effort and improvement were associated with increased academic success and decreased depressive symptoms.
