A Correlational Analysis of Study Skills and Attitudes, Library Skills, and Reading Skills with the Academic Success of Education Students at the University of Portland.
Corlett, Donna Jean
A doctoral study was conducted on the relationship of study skills, educational specialization, sex, and class membership to the academic standing achieved by 57 education students at the University of Portland during the fall semester of 1968. The Brown-Holtzman Study Habits and Attitudes test, the Nelson-Denny Reading Test, and the Library Orientation Test were administered; and the grade point average for the end of the fall semester was the criterion used for multiple regression analysis. Five variables used were significant: (1) study habits and attitudes, (2) library skills, (3) vocabulary, (4) class membership, and (5) reading comprehension. Sex and specialization in elementary or primary education were not significantly correlated. It was concluded that the significant factors could be used to predict grade point average achievement. Several high correlations between variable factors were found. Tables and a bibliography are included. (BT)
