Female (n = 144) and male (n = 166) undergraduate students reported their parents’ level of assertiveness and the amount of reward associated with their parents’ assertive behavior. The descriptions of mother and father behavior and consequences were treated separately in all data analyses. In addition, all subjects completed the Rathus (1973) Assertiveness Schedule (RAS). The linear composite variate of subject-perceived parent assertiveness, perceived reward, and sex of subject was positively associated (Rc= .34, p < .01) with the RAS.
