Preparation is concerned with a child’s academic and social preparation for school. Hostile peer interaction relates to students being picked on or contributing to major classroom behavioral incidents. B. Thompson and J. P. Mazer found that parents most often communicated with teachers regarding their academic concerns, and that communication with teachers primarily occurred through email. Based on these initial results, the Parental Academic Support Scale (PASS) “can provide a more accurate depiction of what topics parents and teachers communicate about most frequently, how important this communication is to student success and which modes are used to communicate about specific topics”. Construct validity has been illustrated through positive associations between the PASS and measures of relational closeness, relationship satisfaction, and family involvement, as well parents’ perceptions of their child’s success in school. Mazer and Thompson demonstrated concurrent validity through positive associations between the PASS and parents’ perceptions of how frequently they had contact with their child’s teacher.
