The Relationship Between Student Perception of School Environment and Reading Achievement in the Elementary School.
Stillion, Judith Ann Morton
The purpose of this study was to measure the interrelationships of students' perceptions of their school environment, IQ, and teacher ratings of students as they correlate with reading achievement. An Environmental Press Instrument (EPI) consisting of four subtests measuring View of Self, View of School, How I Think My Teacher Views Me, and How I Think My Classmates View Me was constructed. Scores on the California Test of Mental Maturity and the California Achievement Test, Reading Section were used as measures of ability and achievement. The sample consisted of 161 fifth grade students. Some of the null hypotheses were: (1) there are no statistically significant differences between scores made on subtests of the EPI, (2) there are no statistically significant differences on items of each subtest, (3) there are no statistically significant relationships between the performance on the EPI and the reading achievement scores, and (4) utilization of the EPI subscores as predictor variables along with IQ and the teacher ratings does not increase the ability to predict the variance of the final reading achievement score. All of the hypotheses were rejected. (Author/WR)
