A total of 608 10th graders were recruited in tshis study. Self-discipline was measured by The Middle School Students’ Self-control Ability Questionnaire. Students’ previous academic achievement is assessed by the Senior High School Entrance Examination (SHSEE, known as “Zhongkao”), and the composite scores of a school monthly exam served as the later achievement.
