The Identification and Analysis of Selected Factors Contributing to High Achievement in Elementary Science.
Stockwell, Keith William
The purpose of this study was to identify some of the variables that relate to high achievement in elementary school science in Detroit (Michigan) Public Schools. A random sample of 2,112 sixth-grade students from 27 schools was selected for participation in the study. Student data were obtained from the STEP, the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, and the California Test of Mental Maturity. Data were collected from teachers by use of a questionnaire. Thirty-eight variables were defined and grouped into categories of administrative organization, curriculum organization, student aptitude and achievement test scores, and teaching personnel. Variables that correlated at the .01 level of significance are reported. Recommendations based on the analysis are also made. (Author/RH)
