Project no.: 09.3.3-LMT-K-712-21-0089

Project description:

The aim of this internship is to identify the profiles of adolescent personal and interpersonal competencies in the samples of Lithuanian and Swedish gymnasium students. It is important to identify the profiles of competencies related to the optimal developmental outcomes among adolescents in both countries. During the internship, the profiles of adolescent competencies will be examined in two large samples. The Lithuanian data for the analyses come from the Goals’ Lab study conducted by KTU researchers, the Swedish data come from the study conducted by Lund University researchers. The instrumentation of both studies is partially aligned. The internship will involve collaboration with researchers at Lund University in the analysis of data from both studies, while mastering the analytical method of latent profile analysis.
