Reading Achievement and Its Relationship to Academic Performance; Part Three: Relationships of Family Background and Third Grade Performance to Sixth Grade Reading Achievement, Laboratory Paper #29, and Supplemental Data on High and Low IQ and SES Groups in Four Race-by-Sex Samples.
Lloyd, Dee Norman
Students whose reading achievement was average, below average, and above average were compared on measures of educational and occupational background, family characteristics, and elementary school performance prior to grade 6. Results were analyzed separately by sex, race (Negro and Caucasian), both sexes and races combined, and upper and lower socioeconomic and mental ability levels. Findings which achieved statistical significance included: (1) differences among achievement groups in parents' marital status were significant only in the Caucasian male sample; (2) parents' education and occupation had a greater relationship to reading achievement for girls than for boys and particularly for girls with higher IQ scores; (3) among those retained in a grade, differences among achievement groups were significant only in the Negro female sample; (4) the difference between achievement groups on socioeconomic level of father was significant for Negro females; and (5) the decrease in performance from grade 3 to grade 6 was significantly greater for underachievers than for average and overachievers. Supplemental Data on High and Low IQ and SES Groups in Four Race-by-Sex Samples included. See Part One [ED 034 660] and Part Two [CS000078]. (Author/RD)
