Achievement test scores and measures of district and pupil characteristics were analyzed for all California school districts. Achievement test scores were found to be highly correlated among each other. The best single predictor of achievement scores was a measure of family poverty. Scholastic aptitude scores were not used as predictors. Regression equations which were developed to predict achievement scores on the basis of district characteristics accounted for about half of the variance in achievement scores among districts.
