THE PREDICTION OF SCHOOL ADJUSTMENT.
LAMBERT, NADINE M.
A PSYCHIATRIST, A CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST, AND A SOCIAL WORKER EACH MADE INDEPENDENT CASE STUDIES OF EACH OF 300 CHILDREN EQUALLY DIVIDED BETWEEN THE SECOND AND FIFTH GRADES. TWO OBJECTIVES WE KEPT IN MIND--(1) MAKING AN ACCURATE PREDICTION OF THE CHILD'S ADJUSTMENT TO SCHOOL AND (2) TRYING TO DEVISE A USEFUL SET OF CRITERIA UPON WHICH CONSISTENT PREDICTIONS COULD BE MADE ON A SCALE RANGING FROM GOOD TO POOR SCHOOL ADJUSTMENT. STUDENTS WERE RATED BY THEIR TEACHERS ON A SPECIALLY DEVISED CLASSROOM "ADJUSTMENT GRID." A REPRESENTATIVE CROSS SECTION OF THESE STUDENTS WAS THEN SELECTED AS EXPERIMENTAL SUBJECTS. ONLY ABOUT SIX STUDENTS WERE CHOSEN FROM ANY ONE TEACHER'S CLASS. APPROPRIATE STATISTICAL TECHNIQUES WERE UTILIZED IN ANALYSIS OF THE VARIANCE BETWEEN THE PREDICTIONS OF THE EXPERIMENTAL WORKERS AND THE ACTUAL CLASSROOM ADJUSTMENT AS RATED BY THE TEACHERS. THE DATA REPORTED LENT STRONG SUPPORT TO THE ABILITY OF THE SOCIAL WORKER, CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST, AND PSYCHIATRIST TO PREDICT ADJUSTMENT STATUS OF SCHOOL CHILDREN. THESE ABILITIES ARE ESPECIALLY STRONG WHEN UTILIZED IN A TEAM SITUATION.
