The Correlation of Parents' and Students' Attitudes with Hebrew Language Achievement.
Ravid, Ruth D.
A study investigated correlations between students' and parents' attitudes toward the Hebrew language, students' attitudes and achievement in Hebrew, attitude differences in boys and girls, and attitude differences of students in the third and fourth years of Hebrew study. Parents and students in four Chicago-area supplementary Hebrew schools were administered attitude questionnaires, and student achievement was measured with standardized, norm-referenced tests. The findings were contrary to expectations. The correlation between parents' and students' attitudes was low and not significant. The correlation between student attitudes and achievement was low, although statistically significant. There was no difference between boys' and girls' mean attitude scores, and no difference between the two instructional levels. (MSE)
