DYNAMICS OF ACHIEVEMENT--A STUDY OF DIFFERENTIAL GROWTH OF ACHIEVEMENT OVER TIME.
OKADA, TETSUO; AND OTHERS
IN THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY SURVEY, STANDARDIZED TESTS WERE GIVEN FOR GRADES 1, 3, 6, 9, AND 12. DATA WERE PRESENTED IN TERMS OF RACE, METROPOLITAN-NONMETROPOLITAN AREA, AND REGION. THE PURPOSES WERE TO--(1) PRESENT DATA SHOWING INCREASES IN ACHIEVEMENT, AND (2) CHARACTERIZE THE GROWTH IN ACHIEVEMENT BY RACE, METROPOLITAN-NONMETROPOLITAN AREA, AND GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS, TO PROVIDE A YARDSTICK OF ACHIEVEMENT FOR SPECIFIC RACES AND REGIONS. RESULTS SHOWED A LARGE DIFFERENTIAL RATE OF GROWTH OF ACHIEVEMENT AMONG RACES. NEGRO STUDENTS DO NOT ATTAIN THE SIXTH-GRADE ABILITY LEVEL UNTIL GRADE 8 FOR READING COMPREHENSION, VERBAL ABILITY, AND MATHEMATICS. FROM GRADE 6 THROUGH GRADE 12, THERE IS A GRADUALLY INCREASING GAP BETWEEN THE NEGRO AND WHITE STUDENTS FOR THE SUBJECT AREAS MENTIONED. SIMILAR LAGS IN ACHIEVEMENT ARE OBSERVED FOR OTHER DISADVANTAGED STUDENT GROUPS. TEST SCORES, NATIONAL MEANS AND TEST SCORES FOR WHITE AND NEGRO, AND GRADE-LEVEL EQUIVALENT COMPARISONS ARE GIVEN.
