Are Summer-born Children Disadvantaged? The Birthdate Effect in Education.
Bell, John F.; Daniels, Sandra
Oxford Review of Education, v16 n1 p67-80 1990
Uses a hierarchical linear model to test the effect of birthdate on science ability in British schoolchildren, ages 11, 13, and 15. Reports that summer-born children scored lower than autumn-born children on science survey tests. Urges teachers to consider these artificial performance differences when grouping pupils according to ability for National Assessment Levels. (DB)
