A Comparison of Teacher Rankings of Reading Readiness, Metropolitan Readiness Test Score Rankings, and Socioeconomic Status Rankings of First Graders.
Elijah, David V., Jr.
The purpose of this study was: (1) to determine to what extent teacher rankings of reading readiness compare with reading readiness test results, (2) to determine to what extent teacher rankings of reading readiness compare with pupil socioeconomic status, and (3) to determine to what extent readiness test results compare with pupil socioeconomic status. The population for the study consisted of 536 pupils in 26 classrooms in Oklahoma City. The teacher ranking of reading readiness was done during the third week of school. The reading readiness test administered was the Metropolitan Readiness Test, Form B. Pupil socioeconomic status was determined by using a scale developed by Cecil North and Paul Hatt to classify occupations. Occupations of the head of the student's family were ranked according to this scale. The results indicated that there is a significant relationship between teacher ranking of reading readiness status of pupils and a ranking of student's Metropolitan Readiness Test scores, there is a significant relationship between a ranking of readiness test scores and socioeconomic status, and there is a significant relationship between teacher rankings of readiness and pupil socioeconomic status.
