Nonpromotion Correlates and Outcomes at Different Grade Levels.
Safer, Daniel J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v19 n8 p500-03 Oct 1986
A survey of 200 student folders revealed that elementary school (ES) nonpromotion is primarily associated with low academic achievement and IQ, whereas junior high school (JHS) nonpromotion is mainly correlated to behavioral suspensions and absenteeism. Improved performance occurs in the year following an ES nonpromotion but not following a JHS grade retention. (Author/DB)
