Underachievement Is Many Sided
Allen, Dean A.
Personnel and Guidance Journal, 49, 7, 529-532, Mar '71
Underachievers are defined merely in terms of the discrepancy between their predicted and earned grades. So classified, this article contends, the groups are too heterogenous to be psychologically meaningful. Different types of achievers and underachievers need to be identified and different educational climates need to be studied, if the concept of underachievement is to become productive in our thinking about high school and college students.
