Measuring Need Achievement in the Elementary Classroom.
White, Hazel L.; Mouw, John T.
This study examined the effects of the need to achieve, as measured by a behavioral checklist, on reading achievement. Subjects were 96 students enrolled in a southwestern Mississippi school district; 32 students were randomly selected from each of the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. Each subject was then tested in reading achievement, IQ, and achievement need. The measure of achievement need was found to be relatively independent of measured IQ; as a predictor of reading achievement, it was equal to, or better than, IQ. The achievement checklist and tabular illustrations of data are provided. (Author/KS)
