The Relationship Between Academic Achievement and the Demographic Characteristics of Hearing Impaired Children and Youth. Series R, No. 2.
Academic achievement test data from a nationwide random sample of 6,873 students enrolled in special educational programs for the hearing impaired in spring, 1974, were considered in relation to the demographic characteristics of the students. After statistical rescaling to eliminate the influence of age, the data clearly showed some strong relationships between test scores and such demographic variables as age at onset of the hearing loss, the cause of the loss, the degree of the loss (as better ear average), additional handicapping conditions, ethnic background, and type of special educational program.
