Gill, Sukhdeep; Reynolds, Arthur J.
Journal of School Psychology, v37 n4 p403-24 Win 1999
Used model of mediated effects to test processes of influence from parents' and teachers' expectations to sixth-grade outcomes.

Prior achievement emerged as powerful mediator of effects of early educational intervention to sixth-grade outcomes. (Author/JDM)
