Abstract:   (1237 Views)
This study aimed to present a relationship model between parenting styles and parental personality traits and academic performance with the mediating role of academic buoyancy in high school students. The study was a descriptive correlation and its statistical population included all male and female high school students in Fasa in the academic year of 2018-19 and their parents, among whom using a multi-stage cluster random sampling method. A total of 493 students (248 boys and 245 girls) were selected and the data were collected using NEO_FFI Five Personality Factor Scale, Academic Performance Scale, and Academic Buoyancy Scale. Findings from structural equation modeling showed that academic buoyancy mediates the relationship between personality traits and academic performance. The study model predicted 46% of the variance changes in the criterion variable. Examining the fit of the model through the fit indices showed a suitable and acceptable fit of the model.
