Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate and determine middle secondary school students’ assertiveness. A total of 88 IT students in one of the middle secondary schools in central Bhutan was surveyed. Students were classified based on two age groups of below 15 years and 15 to 18 years of age. Questionnaire was used to assess whether the attitudes of the students were passive, aggressive or assertive. The questionnaire was developed based on the book "Assertiveness" by Chalvin, (1981) and the interpretations from Pro mind training (2012). The questions corresponded to the three attitudes i.e. passive, aggressive and assertive attitude. 53.4 %, 35.2% and 11.4% of the total students were found passive, assertive and aggressive respectively. The results indicated female students to be more assertive than the male students from the age groups.
