Psychological, Family, and Peer Predictors of Academic Outcomes in First- through Fifth-Grade Children.
Kurdek, Lawrence A.; Sinclair, Ronald J.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n3 p449-57 Sep 2000
Tests a model that posited that three diverse sets of academic outcomes for children were uniquely determined by psychological, family, and peer factors. Results reveal that early verbal skills are unique predictors of academic outcomes, and that the relative importance of psychological and peer factors depends on the kind of academic outcome of interest, supporting an outcome-specific view of academic performance.
