The Effect of Academic Status on Race-Related Differences in Reading Achievement and Reading Progress.
Race-related differences in reading achievement and reading progress were studied in a public elementary school. Two different groups of students were followed over a five year period. No significant racial differences in reading progress were found for those students who stayed within the school for three to four years. The reading achievement differences found were largely accounted for by the differences between test scores of black and white students who were new to the district at the time they were tested. The need to use a longitudinal approach in studies of differences in achievement is discussed. (Author)
