Snider, Vicki E.; Tarver, Sara G.
Psychology in the Schools, v26 n4 p346-53 Oct 1989
To investigate the relationship between achievement and intelligence quotient (IQ) in the learning-disabled (LD) population, changes in IQ scores of 49 LD students from early elementary grades to high school grades were correlated with variety of achievement scores. Results suggest that underachievement of LD students plays a predominant causal role in the achievement-IQ relationship. (Author/TE)
