The Influence of Environments on Student Outcomes.
Danley, Ray; Weiss, Joel
This study examines the relationship between the interactive influences of two environmental settings--the home and the school--and three measures of student growth--reading, mathematics, and self-esteem. Each setting was measured along three dimensions of influence--attitudinal, process, and structural. A three stage, multivariate regression analysis was used to examine the data from 1,660 Grade 5 students in 144 classrooms in southern Ontario. Results showed a significant relationship between the problem-solving subtest of mathematics and the interaction of the two settings. But for reading, self-esteem, and mathematics concepts, no evidence of interaction was shown between the home environment variables and the classroom environment variables. (Author)
