Relationships between Sense of School Community and Sense of Religious Commitment among Christian High School Students
Wighting, Mervyn J.; Liu, Jing
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v18 n1 p56-68 2009
Quantitative analysis was used to determine whether relationships could be determined between sense of school community and sense of religious commitment among high school students (N = 71) based on their scores from separate instruments measuring the two constructs. Study results provide evidence that relationships do indeed exist and that differences between the two constructs can be identified within the data. Correlations between the two constructs were higher among girls than among boys, but there were no significant gender differences in either sense of community or in religious commitment. Implications of these results are discussed and recommendations for further research are provided. (Contains 4 tables.)
