Evaluation of the Predictive Validity of Tests of Mental Ability for Classroom Performance in Elementary Grades.
Messe, Lawrence A.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, v71 n2 p233-41 Apr 1979
The relationship between elementary school children's mental ability scores and classroom performance was investigated. A strong predictive relationship between mental ability scores and classroom performance was obtained irrespective of the subjects' socioeconomic status. These findings indicate that predictions of academic performance derived from standardized tests are not biased against lower status children. (Author/RD)
