The Effect of Student Behavior on the Reading Achievement of Second Grade Students.
Kulekowskis, Jennifer
A study explored the relationship between student behavior ("troubling" versus "non-troubling") and reading achievement among second-grade students. Of the 128 students enrolled in regular education classrooms at Paul Revere Elementary School (a public school in a southern suburb of Chicago), 30 were randomly selected to be a sub-population representing "troubling" students and 30 were randomly selected to be a sub-population representing "non-troubling" students. Students identified as having troubling behavior could not be dually classified as "Behavior Disordered" nor "Learning Disabled," but were, like their non-troubling peers, enrolled in regular education classrooms. The norm-referenced Metropolitan Achievement Test 7 indicated that students who were classified as non-troubling had significantly higher reading achievement scores than students who were classified as troubling.
