Performance of Rural Morenci, Michigan Fourth Grade Children from Low-Income Families on the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) Test from 1980-1984 Compared to School and State Wide Averages.
Bower, Douglas
A study examined whether students coming from low income families perform less well on achievement tests than do students in general. Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) test scores of fourth grade students coming from low income, rural Michigan homes were compared to overall schoolwide and statewide average scores for the period 1980-84. Scores for 354 students, 104 classified as low income, were analyzed. Results indicated that, with the exception of 1980, math and reading scores for the low income students were lower than for those of the overall student population. The findings also revealed a trend toward declining performance of low income students over the years studied. (FL)
