Topic 5; Goal 5; Assessing Self-Determination in the Era of Evidence-Based Practices: The Development and Validation of Student and Adult Measures of Self-Determination
The purpose of this project is to assess the development and validation of student and adult measures of self-determination. Self-determination refers to advocating problem-solving and individual decision-making on personal life matters. The Self-Determined model promotes student and adult participants to take control of their future in order to improve the quality of their lives. The goal of this project is to help promote participants to achieve their educational goals and to increase their independence.
