MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this dissertation was to investigate the relationship between global parenting style and education specific parenting practices as processes related to academic achievement and achievement related factors. This study not only assessed the degree of relationship between variables, it also tested a process model in which education specific parenting practices mediated the relationship between global parenting style and academic achievement and achievement related outcomes. Four sets of variables were analyzed: (a) parenting style variables (Authoritative, Authoritarian, and Permissive parenting), (b) education specific parenting practices (Parental Involvement, Encouragement to Achieve, and Response to Grades), (c) achievement related outcomes factors (Achievement Attributions, Study Strategies, and Motivation), and (d) academic achievement (Self-Reported Grade Point Average).
