NLSMA Reports, No. 26, Correlates of Mathematics Achievement: Summary.
Wilson, James W., Ed.; Begle, Edward G., Ed.
This is one of a series of reports on the National Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA). This one is a summary of NLSMA Reports Nos. 21-25, presented as an aid in searching for patterns across various correlates, various mathematical achievement measures, and various samples. In the original analyses, students were grouped into three ability levels and possible correlates were considered as classification variables; the resulting data were considered through a two-way analysis of variance. Findings are presented in the form of individual, 2x2 matrices for each set of variables. No attempt is made to interpret the results. The report is intended to serve as a resource document to suggest hypotheses and further lines of inquiry. For related documents, see ED 044 277 through ED 044 283, ED 044 310, ED 045 447, and SE 016 669 through SE 016 691. (LS)
