A Study of the Relationship Between Affective and Achievement Measures.
Ligon, Glynn; And Others
The salient role that affective objectives play in compensatory education prompted the study that is the subject of this paper. Analyses were applied to data gathered at the kindergarten, elementary, and secondary levels on four affective instruments and four achievement measures over a two-year period. Relationships found on the first year's data were positive but very small, although significance was reached in some comparisons, partially as a result of the large sample sizes. Additional analyses were carried out using entry-level California Achievement Test (CAT) and affective measures as predictors for end-of-year CAT scores. Further analyses are proceeding on the following year's data. (Author/RC)
