The Use of Correlates of Achievement in Statewide Assessment.
Campbell, Paul B.
Correlates that describe in part the variation of conditions under which learning is attempted are discussed. Each of these correlates is significantly related to student achievement. Categories into which the correlates are grouped are: Socioeconomic Status Variables (mother's occupation, father's occupation, mother's educational level, father's educational level, value of home, and household income); Teacher Variables (teacher's experience, teacher's salary, teacher's certification, student orientation in contrast to "subject" orientation, verbal facility, recency of training and level of education, and job satisfaction--teacher turnover); and School Variables (school site size, building age, percent substandard classrooms, library volumes per student, textbooks per student, school size, student mobility, class size, number of special area teachers per student--lab facilities, average teacher time in guidance, length of school year, and materials and supplies expenditures).
