Relationship of Friends, Physical Education, and State Test Scores: Implications for School Counselors
Hollingsworth, Mary Ann
Journal of School Counseling, v8 n35 2010
This study examined the relationship between dimensions of wellness and academic performance for 634 third through fifth grade students in Title One schools in rural Mississippi, using composites of the Five Factor Wellness Inventory for Elementary Children and Reading, Language, and Math Scores of the Mississippi Curriculum Test (a state level measure of content mastery). Results supported significant correlations between performance on all three academic tests and scores on social, physical, and coping wellness composites. Implications are discussed for school counselors with support of practical wellness applications with elementary students and needs for further research. (Contains 2 tables.)
