Multivariate Prediction of Early School Achievement.
Shack, David M.; Owen, Steven V.
While many studies have predicted elementary school achievement, few have investigated both cognitive and biographical predictors simultaneously in a multiple regression format. The present study used both types of variables in predicting achievement over a 20 month span. Criterion variables consisted of Stanford Achievement Test subscores, and a composite Stanford score, collected at the end of the first grade. Shrunken R's ranged from .60 to .76. Sex of student was the only biographical variable which consistently entered optimum prediction batteries. Implications for "sex" as a moderator variable and preventive programs for predicted low achievers are discussed. (Author)
