An Analysis of Certain Interpersonal Aspects of the Home and School in Low Socioeconomic Areas Relating to Student Achievement.
Sommerville, Joseph C.
This article summarizes an investigation of factors manifested by 6th grade students in four Detroit metropolitan area schools who achieved on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills at levels significantly above and below the average. The study sample consisted of 80 students with scores divided equally above and below the average. Instruments measured students' self-esteem, a questionnaire assessed the nature of selected background experiences, and the California Test of Mental Maturity provided mental maturity factors. The results imply a significant relationship between home environment and achievement level of students. (Author/MLF)
