Research is reviewed concerning 11 factors (including low self esteem, socioeconomic influences, and teachers' expectations) in underachievement. Identification and diagnosis through observation and self observation are examined. Seven treatment aspects (including drugs, behavioral approaches, information feedback, and motivational strategies) are considered. (CL)
