Grade-Point Averages of Overseas Military-Dependent Students Compared to Grade-Point Averages of Non-Military Students.
Eddy, Robert John
An investigation was conducted in order to make a comparison of grade-point averages, earned by military-dependent students in Overseas Dependent Schools, with the grade-point averages of a comparable non-mobile student society with whom they graduated in the United States. Data was derived from the permanent record cards of 2,173 graduated students over a period of five graduating classes, in Marin County, California. Students were designated as A) military-dependent or B) non-military. The results indicated that there was no significant difference in mean grade-point average of the two groups. In conclusion, it was recommended that similar studies be conducted in school districts that have a transient military-dependent student body from overseas. To validate the findings of this investigation it was additionally suggested that additional variables, comparable to both groups, be added to measure achievement as proof that mobility affects achievement.
