Student Perceptions of School Efforts to Facilitate Student Involvement, School Commitment, Self-Determination, and High School Graduation
Cavendish, Wendy
Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, v16 n2 p257-275 Jun 2013
This study examined the relationship between student perceptions of school efforts to facilitate student involvement, school commitment, self-determination skills, and on track indicators for graduation in 10th grade and actual graduation outcomes two years later. The participants were 154 primarily minority students in a large, urban school district. Student perceptions of higher levels of school efforts to facilitate student involvement was related to an increased likelihood that students had passed a state high stakes assessment and were on-track for graduation at the end of 10th grade and an increased likelihood of actual graduation. Implications for facilitating student involvement in educational planning are discussed.
