ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE OF STUDENTS

 

Abstract

This study explored the study of Emotional intelligence and academic achievement of high school students of Model Residential School and Mainstream schools. The academic achievement was measured using t Composite test and promotion list from schools. Emotional Intelligence was measured using Emotional Intelligent scale for secondary school students (Suresh Vijayan and Subair).The study revealed that emotional intelligence and academic achievement of the Model Residential School students differ significantly from Mainstream school students.
