Factors Influencing Success or Underachievement of the Able Child.
Lee-Corbin, Hilary; Evans, Roy
Early Child Development and Care, v117 p133-44 Feb 1996
Used quantitative and qualitative measures to examine reasons for underachievement or success in 9- to 11-year olds. Found poor handwriting, when stemming from weak fine motor skills and poor eye-hand coordination, marks underachievement. Socioeconomic factors influenced differences in math, but not in reading ability. Academic success was more prevalent in higher SES groups. (JW)
