About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grade 6 to 12 who have their need for competence highly satisfied. Students are given a 'total competence score' based on their responses to 6 individual questions about mental fitness, and a cutoff is used to identify students with a high score.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Student Wellness Survey - Grades 6-12

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who have a total competence score higher than a specified cutoff by the number of respondents who described their feelings and ideas for at least 3 of the following 6 questionnaire items: I feel I do things well at school, I feel my teachers think I am good at things, I feel I do things well at home, I feel my parents think that I am good at things, I feel I do things well when I am with my friends and I feel my friends think I am good at things. The response options for these 6 items are: really false for me, sort of false for me, sort of true for me and really true for me.
