The Effect of Weekly Progress Reports on Academic Achievement.
Armour, Katherine S.
This study investigated the effect of weekly progress reports on the academic achievement of seventh grade language arts students. It also investigated the effects of weekly progress reports on locus of control attribution and the relationship between academic achievement and locus of control attribution. The study took place in a suburban school of 1,344 students, 95% of whom were African American. Two seventh grade language arts classes that were equivalent based on standardized tests scores were chosen as treatment and control groups. The comparison group received progress reports at 3-week intervals, but the treatment group received weekly progress reports itemizing the student's score on each assignment. No significant differences were found between the groups for academic achievement or locus of control. Twelve appendixes contain a sample report, the locus of control measure, grade sheets, and statistical data about student achievement and locus of control. (Contains 54 references.) (SLD)
