The Family-Study Interface and Academic Outcomes: Testing a Structural Model
Meeuwisse, Marieke; Born, Marise Ph.; Severiens, Sabine E.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v103 n4 p982-990 Nov 2011
Expanding on family-work and work-study models, this article investigated a model for family-study conflict and family-study facilitation. The focus of the study was the relationship of family-study conflict and family-study facilitation with students' effortful behaviors and academic performance among a sample of university students (N = 1,656). Model tests using structural equation modeling identified participation in family activities, family social support, and involvement with family as antecedents of both family-study conflict and family-study facilitation. In turn, family-study conflict was negatively related to study effort, and family-study facilitation positively contributed to students' study effort. Effort positively predicted students' grade point average. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
