Gpa teen dating
This study examines male-to-female physical abuse within adolescent relationships.
Analyses use data describing 603 opposite sex relationships reported during Wave II of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) matched with data on the individual characteristics of both the reporting females and their male partners from Wave I.
By contrast, an A in a low-level course translated to a 4.0.
Because the average GPA has risen since 2009 (when the study was conducted), it's safe to assume that the 2018 GPAs will actually be a bit higher, though the trends will remain the same.
Even if your school doesn't use weighted GPAs, the difficulty of your classes is an important factor.
If you have a GPA that’s not super impressive but you’re in the hardest classes, you will have a better chance of being accepted to selective schools than someone with a slightly higher numerical GPA in lower-level classes.
This increase in the average GPA has a lot to do with grade inflation (which we talk about in more detail below).
In addition to this study, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) offers some data on average high school GPAs in the US, although this data is from 2009, so it's a bit out of date.
The first set of analysis found that male-to-female abuse was predicted by 6 individual characteristics of males and 6 individual characteristics of females.
