The writer conducted this study to examine whether three specific
scales can be used as a composite test battery for the assessment
of resiliency. The paper concludes that it can be expected that if the
tests do assess most of the traits and characteristics associated
with resiliency, there would be correlations between test scores
and measures of academic success. The paper is broken down into several parts including a description of the actual experiment as well as a review of its outcome.

From the Paper:

"In the last two decades, there has been a good deal of
research that has focused on "resilient students." This research
has defined these students as those who academically succeed
despite their experiencing various strong stressors (e.g.,
poverty, parental divorce, etc.) that place them at risk of
school failure (Christiansen, Christiansen & Howard, 1997). In
each of these studies, researchers have found some
characteristics which they identify as contributive to the
success of these disadvantaged students."
