Reading Achievement and Its Relationship to Academic Performance; Part Two: Relationships of Reading Achievement in Race, Sex, Socio-economic, and Mental Ability Groups, Laboratory Paper #28, and Appendix to Parts 2 and 3.
Lloyd, Dee Norman
This investigation was designed to explore the differences between 6th grade underachievers, average achievers, and overachievers in reading in their later achievement and behavior and to compare relationships to reading achievement that occur for students with high socio-economic status (SES) background and low SES background, and students with high IQ scores and low IQ scores. The purpose of dividing the sample into subgroups based on the major variables of IQ, SES, race and sex was to determine whether the effects of underachievement in reading were modified in groups differing in these characteristics. Differences that were found were small and generally overshadowed by the consistent pattern reflected in all groups: i.e., underachievers in the 6th grade performed at a lower level than average achievers on standardized tests, course marks, and other measures of achievement all through secondary school. Included is the supplement to Part Two and Part Three. See Part One [ED 034 660], and Part Three [CS 000 079]. (Author/WR)
