Collaboration is essential to social and emotional competence. Accordingly, collaboration has always been considered a key indicator and core accomplishment of students' development. People who excel at collaboration can successfully cooperate with others, reduce interpersonal conflict and achieve the final goal by maintaining a positive attitude. For children and adolescents, greater collaboration means more pro-social behaviors and fewer problem behaviors. Collaboration is also important for students' life development and is closely linked to some life outcome variables, such as educational expectations, health and well-being, according to the OECD. Based on evaluation data out of Suzhou, China, the study under review presents the evaluation results of teenagers' cooperation ability from different dimensions and levels. The authors present the research results from three aspects, including the predictive variable analysis of collaboration ability and the life outcome variable of collaboration ability. Analysis shows that the students’ empathy, trust, and cooperation capabilities differ depending on age, gender, urban & rural areas, and school types; correlation exists in the 15 kinds abilities of the “Big Five Personalities”. Through regression analysis from multiple aspects explored the prediction variables, the researchers explored the student's ability of collaboration and cooperation ability in the 5 major categories of life outcome variables.
