Development in multiple areas of life in adolescence: Interrelations between academic achievement, perceived peer acceptance, and self-esteem

A study about the interrelations between academic achievement, perceived peer acceptance, and self-esteem for the development in adolescence.

Buchcover Development in multipleAdolescents are confronted with various demands: they are supposed to be successful at school, build up positive relationships with their peers and develop their own identity. The study presented has examined the connection of central indicators of these factors (performance, acceptance by peers, self-worth). The results show that the factors are generally connected in a positive way and suggest that positive development in each of the areas can become a resource for the others. The connections varied, however, depending on age or type of school, and thus underline the importance of research that is development- and context-sensitive.
