Academic Strategies: Profiles of Resilient and Non-resilient Students
Measurements in Psychology and Education
A strong relationship between the socioeconomic status and academic achievements of students is one of the most common findings in educational studies around the world. However, the results of the research also indicate that there are groups of students who, having an unfavorable socioeconomic status, nevertheless show high educational results. Such groups are called resilient. At the moment, there are no studies in Russia that would examine whether there are differences in the academic activity of resilient and nonresponsive students, and also how the academic activity of students from families with low socioeconomic status is related to their educational outcomes. This paper is devoted to the investigation of this problem. As a result of the research, conclusions were drawn about the differences in the academic strategies of the resilient and non-resilient students, and factors related to the resistance were found.
