The Relationship Between Pupil Mobility and Reading Achievement in High-Mobility-Low-Income Elementary Schools.
Black, Frank Simms, Jr.
The relationship between pupil mobility and reading achievement of sixth grade pupils in selected high mobility, low income elementary schools were investigated in this study. Relationships were analyzed between the variables of mobility, sex, and reading achievement with I.Q. held constant. Two hundred ten sixth-grade pupils located in seven high mobility, low income elementary schools composed the population of the study. Reading achievement and I.Q. data were obtained from the results of a City Wide Testing Program. Sex and mobility data were collected from personal records. Analysis of covariance was used to adjust the mean achievement score for the influence of I.Q. and the analysis of variance was used to analyze the adjusted mean scores derived from the reading achievement category of mobility and sex. The results indicated that the reading achievement of mobile pupils is not significantly different from stationary pupils, and there are no significant differences in achievement among mobile pupils.
