The Effects of Parent Involvement on Student Achievement.
Luchuck, Vickie Lynne
This study investigated the relationship between parent involvement in elementary school and student achievement. Subjects were randomly selected students (from second through fifth grade classrooms in a West Virginia elementary school), and their parents. Parents completed the Parent Involvement Check-up scale, and student achievement was measured by the Stanford Achievement Test. Findings indicated that parent involvement contributed to greater academic gains by their children. Recommendations for increasing greater parental involvement in schools were made based on the findings. (A copy of the Parent Involvement Check-Up Scale is appended. Contains 64 references.) (JPB)
