A Theoretical Approach for Selecting Elementary School Environmental Variables.
Sinclair, Robert L.
To determine specific environmental variables of the elementary school is the purpose of this study. Stable characteristics of intelligence and achievement were selected because they were considered useful for generating salient environmental counterparts likely to exist in elementary institutions. Achievement motivation, language development, and general learning were three environmental variables considered to be counterparts of intelligence. Counterparts of achievement were achievement press, language models, academic guidance, activeness of the school, intellectuality in the school, and work habits in the school. C. Robert Pace's variables (practicality, community, awareness, propriety, and scholarship) are dimensions which describe the elementary environment and they were included with the seven environmental counterparts (for developing intelligence and achievement) which were considered in this investigation.
