Mayeske, George W.; And Others
This paper, number 7 in a series, describes the background for a new study to be based on the Equality of Educational Opportunity Survey data and to be entitled "A Study of Our Nation's Students." The nature and scope of the survey are defined and relevant background and conclusions from the prior reported studies based on this data, "Equality of Educational Opportunity" (The Coleman Report) and "A Study of Our Nation's Schools," are educed. The new study focuses on individual students as the unit of analysis. In particular, the main effects and interactions of family background, school variables, geographic region, racial and ethnic background, and sex differences on achievement and motivation of the student will be studied. The data analysis model, the correlation matrix, and the commonality model to be used in the new study are described. Finally, a description of the individual student, student body, school, and geographic variables and sets of variables to be studied concludes the paper. See also TM 000 144 and TM 000 182. (LR)
