VARIABLES RELATED TO OUTCOMES OF TEST INTERPRETATION.
OHLSEN, MERLE M.; AND OTHERS
THIS THREE-PART STUDY WAS CONCERNED WITH THE MANNER IN WHICH CERTAIN VARIABLES SEEMED TO BE RELATED TO THE OUTCOMES OF TEST INTERPRETATION AND TO STUDENTS' PERCEPTION OF THEMSELVES AND THEIR TEACHERS' PERCEPTION OF THEM. PART ONE WAS CONCERNED WITH THE OUTCOMES OF TEST INTERPRETATION AS RELATED TO SUCH FACTORS AS (A) COUNSELOR WHO INTERPRETED THE TEST SCORES, (B) SCHOOL MARKS, (C) SELF-ESTIMATES, (D) ACCURACY OF SELF-ESTIMATES, (E) FATHER'S OCCUPATIONAL LEVEL, (F) FATHER'S EDUCATIONAL LEVEL, (G) MOTHER'S EDUCATIONAL LEVEL AND OTHERS. PART TWO WAS CONCERNED WITH FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH TEACHER OVER- AND UNDER-ESTIMATION OF STUDENTS' INTELLECTUAL ABILITY. PART THREE INVESTIGATED THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHERS' ESTIMATES OF INTELLECTUAL ABILITY AND THE STUDENTS' SELF-ESTIMATES. DATA WERE USED FROM A PREVIOUS COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROJECT (NUMBER 1344) ON 703 STUDENTS IN GRADES 5, 7, 9, AND 11 FROM 5 RURAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS. FINDINGS COULD BE USED BY COUNSELORS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND STUDENTS' BEHAVIOR AND TO HELP COUNSELORS DEAL WITH STUDENTS' REACTION TO WHAT THEY LEARN ABOUT THEMSELVES. IN PARTICULAR, THESE RESULTS SUGGEST THAT COUNSELORS SPEND MORE TIME WITH THE UNDERESTIMATORS. (JM)
