DETERMINANTS OF ACHIEVEMENT AND UNDER-ACHIEVEMENT AMONG LOWER CLASS URBAN NEGRO CHILDREN. PROGRESS REPORT.
HIRSCH, JAY G.; AND OTHERS
THIS PROGRESS REPORT DESCRIBES THE DEVELOPMENT OF TESTING METHODS AND DATA COLLECTION PROCEDURES FOR USE IN THREE PARALLEL STUDIES OF THE ACHIEVEMENT OF 73 FIFTH-GRADE URBAN, LOWER-CLASS NEGRO CHILDREN. A SOCIAL-PSYCHOLOGICAL INVESTIGATION RELATED THE CHILDREN'S ACHIEVEMENT TO SELECTED VARIABLES OF SOCIALIZATION, ESPECIALLY APPROVAL-DISAPPROVAL, THE PROVISION OF INFORMATION, DISCIPLINE, AND THE INVOLVEMENT OF THE PARENT IN THE CHILD'S PERFORMANCE. A PSYCHIATRIC INVESTIGATION USED A SAMPLE OF FOUR MALE AND FOUR FEMALE ACHIEVERS AND AN EQUAL NUMBER OF UNDERACHIEVERS TO INVESTIGATE SUCH FACTORS AS HEALTH, INTELLIGENCE, COGNITIVE AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT, MOTIVATION, EGO DEVELOPMENT, AND EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TO LEARN. IN AN ANTHROPOLOGICAL STUDY THE PARENTS OF THE 16 CHILDREN IN THE PSYCHIATRIC INVESTIGATION WERE INTERVIEWED TO DETERMINE THEIR IDEAS ABOUT CHILDREN, CHILD REARING, AND IDEAL ADULT BEHAVIOR. INFORMATION ON THE PARENTS' SOCIAL PARTICIPATION IN THE WIDER SOCIETY AND BIOGRAPHICAL DATA WERE ALSO GATHERED IN ANOTHER STUDY. NO CONCLUSIVE DATA ARE PRESENTED. (DK)
