Family Background, Parent-Child Relationships and Academic Achievement Among Puerto Rican Junior and Senior High School Students. Report No. 4: Study of Factors Affecting Student Achievement.
Nuttall, Ronald L.; And Others
The reliability, validity, and relationships of a Spanish language adaptation of Schaefer's Child's Report of Parental Behavior Inventory (CRPBI) was examined in a sample of 5,300 Puerto Rican adolescents. It was found that the CRPBI had had reliabilities averaging .78 and factor analyses indicated a three factor structure similar to Schaefer's previous work. Background variables, especially socioeconomic status (SES) were related to the CRPBI factors. Generally, higher SES went with higher acceptance and lower hostile psychological control. Children from large families were less accepted. The CRPBI factors predicted grades, especially among junior high school males. Background factors predicted college plans. (Authors)
