      The importance of choosing students for a specific program has been something many specialized schools struggle with. There is little research completed on the relationship between Grit and GPA on middle school aged students. The author collected data on student grade point averages GPA and Grit score from 10th grade students who were enrolled in a dual college high school program. The top 5 performing students and bottom 5 performing students according to GPA were selected for the study. The researcher was investigating if there was a relationship between student GPA and Grit score. The findings showed there was a relationship between Grit and GPA. [from abstract]
