Thriving in the Classroom
Schreiner, Laurie A.
About Campus, v15 n3 p2-10 Jul-Aug 2010
In the last issue of "About Campus," the author outlined the research studies that she presented with Eric J. McIntosh, Denise Nelson, and Shannon Pothovenin in 2009, which led to the creation of the Thriving Quotient, a reliable and valid 35-item instrument that measures the changeable psychological qualities in students that affect their ability to optimize their college experience. Students' thriving academically, interpersonally, and intrapersonally was described, with a particular emphasis on the "positive perspective" element of thriving that forms a psychological foundation for student success. In this second of a three-part series, the author will focus on academic thriving and the implications of the research for both faculty and student life professionals. (Contains 18 notes.)
